- Racial harassment/discrimination/victimisation.
- Sexual harassment/discrimination/victimisation.
- Age discrimination.
- Religion discrimination.
- Disability discrimination.
- Discrimination based on sexual orientation.

- Workplace bullying.
- False redundancy claimed as an excuse for unlawful dismissal.

- Being forced to resign because of the offensive behaviour of others.
The first step by an employment law solicitor is to attempt to negotiate a settlement with the employer. If no agreement can be reached, then it's time to make an application to the London Employment Tribunal which is less formal and has more relaxed procedures than a typical court and renders decisions on employment claims. The Tribunal is made up of three members. There is a legally qualified chairman as well as two lay members from an employer's association or trade union. You have the right to appeal the decision made by the Employment Tribunal, but take note that appeals are only heard in London, Belfast and Edinburgh.
The London Employment Tribunal has the authority to award damages, order that the employee be reinstated or both. Note that there is no statutory cap on the amount of compensation that can be awarded for some of the employment rights claims listed above. Legal costs are not awarded to the winner and must be paid from the compensation received as a result of the successful claim. Remember, though, with our no win no fee policy, you will not be charged if your claim is not successful.

Anyone who believes they have an employment rights claim should immediately consult with an employment law solicitor. There are limits on the amount of time you have to submit your claim to the Employment Tribunal. Do not delay in contacting a legal professional, or you could forever lose your ability to seek compensation for this violation of your employment rights.
