Slater and Gordon Lawyers have extensive experience advising and litigating in sexual orientation discrimination cases at work or in the recruitment process. Our Solicitors have an in-depth knowledge of the detail of sexual orientation legislation and recent developments in case law, and take pride in delivering a quality service in an efficient and cost effective manner.
It is unlawful to discriminate or harass an individual on the basis of sexual orientation, or for perceived sexual orientation.
The provisions in equality legislation protecting people from sexual orientation discrimination are still relatively new compared to much of the other legislation dealing with discrimination. It is imperative that your Solicitor has the right experience, skills and up-to-date knowledge to represent your best interests at all times.
If you feel you have a Sexual Orientation Discrimination Claim please complete our online discrimination enquiry form by answering some questions. A specialist Solicitor will then assess your case, and contact you with his/her opinion. The service is free and 100% confidential.
You may be raising sexual orientation discrimination issues through a formal grievance procedure, or the sexual orientation discrimination you are experiencing may include disciplinary proceedings brought against you. If you are attending a grievance or disciplinary hearing without a trade union representative, our Executive Reps service provides valuable support during the hearing.
If you think you may have a claim for sexual orientation discrimination, all you need to do is fill in our online discrimination enquiry form and answer some questions. An expert Solicitor will then assess your claim, and contact you with his/her opinion. This service is free and confidential.
