The law on discrimination applies to all employers – no matter how big or small and whatever sector you are in.
There is no need for someone to be in employment to bring a claim, so the law also protects, workers, job applicants and former employees.
To make matters worse for businesses, there is unlimited compensation available to a successful claimant as well as being able to award damages for personal injury.
How much is the average claimant awarded? In race cases, £24,322, disability discrimination £30,698, sex discrimination £13,212. The highest award was a staggering £242,000.
And it gets worse. Individual managers and colleagues can be held liable – not just the employer.
To help support our clients, White Horse Professional Resources have teamed up with Philip McCabe, Principal Solicitor at McCabe and Co Employment Solicitors to offer a FREE* briefing to discuss how employers and managers can protect themselves and their organisation.
