Discrimination on the grounds of sex or gender is prohibited by the Equality Act 2010. Indeed, this is the most recent legislation prohibiting discrimination within the workplace.
Discrimination on the grounds of sex or gender can manifest itself in a number of behaviours. If such behaviour influences decisions taken in relation to promotion, recruitment or pay then it may be that your employer is breaching legislation designed to prevent this very type of behaviour occurring.
It is essential that employers have in place clear, robust procedures and policies to prevent such behaviours arising in the first place but also to deal with such incidents should they occur. Should such an issue arise within your workplace, you should bring it to the attention of your employers as soon as possible in order that they might have the opportunity to resolve matters at that stage.
However, if matters are not resolved or not resolved to your satisfaction, you should contact us immediately. We will provide expert advice on what legal rights exist to protect you against such behaviour and how to invoke these. It might be that your circumstances amount to a claim against your employer on the basis of sex or gender discrimination which requires to be heard before an Employment Tribunal. If that is the case, we will ensure your case is not only expertly prepared by our team but is also presented to a Tribunal with the utmost care, professionalism and understanding at every stage.
