Frequently asked questions.

What is direct discrimination?

Direct discrimination often targets an individual in the workplace.

Direct discrimination is where an employer discriminates against an employee if it treats that employee less favourably than it treats, or would treat, another person in the same or similar circumstances, and the reason for less favourable treatment is a protected characteristic.

A straightforward example of direct discrimination might be that a suitably qualified woman would have been promoted if she had been a man.

What is indirect discrimination?

Indirect discrimination occurs when a rule or a policy (otherwise known as a provision, criteria or practice or “PCP”) applies to everybody equally, but disadvantages one group with a particular protected characteristic more than others.

One example of this would be the refusal by the employer to allow any part-time working. This policy may be applied to everybody equally, but it would disadvantage women as a group more than men because statistically more women have child care responsibilities.

Who can bring a claim for discrimination?

Job applicants can claim if they are turned down for a position by reason of a protected characteristic.
Current employees can claim against a prospective employer for acts of discrimination faced within the workplace
Ex-employees and ex-workers can also claim against their ex-employers in some circumstances.

How can I defend a tribunal claim against my company?

If an employee brings a Tribunal claim against your company (or you as an individual), you can file a defence through the Employment Tribunal. Our specialist Discrimination Lawyers can guide you through this litigation process and represent you at Tribunal hearings.
