We have expert religious discrimination Solicitors who have a complete grasp of the detail of discrimination legislation and are committed to providing a high quality and responsive service in an efficient and cost effective manner.
Religious discrimination cases can be highly complex, so it's essential to get expert legal advice as soon as possible. Religious discrimination can also be closely related to race discrimination. Our dedicated team of Solicitors have extensive experience of advising and litigating religious discrimination cases, whether the belief discrimination relates to the recruitment process or in the workplace.
We work on every size of case and as a national law firm we have the experience and the resources to conduct your case wherever you are based.
It's an unfortunate reality of life that many people experience discrimination at work on grounds of their religion or beliefs. However, the law prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion or belief, both at work and outside (in the use of goods and services as a consumer).
The law in fact goes further, protecting people with non-religious beliefs, for example atheism or humanism, but also for people who hold philosophical beliefs, such as a belief in climate change, or pacifism or veganism, from discrimination because of their beliefs.
The law can even extend to political beliefs such as Marxism, communism or free-market capitalism, but not merely to membership of a political party. Scientific beliefs can also be covered, for example a belief in Darwinism, if this is the basis for discrimination suffered.
If you believe that you may have a Religion/Belief Discrimination Claim please fill in our online discrimination enquiry form by answering a few questions. One of our Solicitors will then review your circumstances, and contact you with their opinion on whether the case is worth pursuing. This service is free and 100% confidential.
You may be raising religious or belief discrimination issues through a formal grievance procedure, or the discrimination you are experiencing may include disciplinary proceedings brought against you.
Expert legal assistance is just one freephone call away.
