Discrimination Claims Manchester

An employee (or an applicant for a job) can bring a discrimination claim if they believe that they have been discriminated against (treated less favourably) for one of the protected reasons: sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or nationality.
This is a complex area of employment law. Manchester employment law solicitors, Martin & Co, are experts in discrimination law and have handled dozens of complex discrimination law cases. If you need advice on a discrimination claim in the workplace, you should contact us as early as possible for advice, as time is of the essence, as in most cases, a claim must be brought within 3 months less a day of the act of discrimination.
Head of Martin & Co, John Martin, is praised for his expertise in discrimination law by the Legal 500, and is one of only four solicitors in Manchester and the North West to be placed in their “Hall of Fame” because of his reputation and expertise in employment law and discrimination law.
If a discrimination claim is successful, compensation is unlimited, and in certain cases, very substantial awards of compensation can be made. This is one of the few areas of employment law where compensation awards can extend beyond loss of pay to compensate the individual for “injury to feelings”. The leading case of Vento established that in general, claims for injury to feelings will be placed in one of three categories: lower band (£990 to £9900), middle band (£9900 to £29600) and upper band (£29600 to £49300) depending on the severity of the discrimination and the effect on the individual.
