How is a workplace discrimination claim made?

If you haven’t previously, you should determine whether or not your concern is discrimination under the law.
Particularly if you wish to continue working for your employer, it is always advisable to attempt informal resolutions first. If that fails, you can try one of the other options.
Start gathering evidence without hesitation. Keep any messages regarding the issue and document what transpired.
You can fix a discrimination problem in a variety of ways, depending on the circumstances. You could:
  • Communicate an informal complaint to your employer verbally
  • File a formal complaint with your employer is known as “raising a grievance.”
  • negotiating with your employer to reach a settlement is known as “settling.”
  • Use mediation – a skilled mediator will attempt to assist you and your employer in reaching a settlement before initiating legal action.
  • Before you raise a claim with an employment tribunal, you should attempt to resolve your issue in another manner.
  • You could also quit your employment if you lack confidence in your ability to fix the issue. If you quit your job due to discrimination, you may be eligible for constructive or unfair dismissal.
  • If you take action against discrimination and are then treated unfairly, this is known as victimisation. You have legal protection and can add it to your existing discrimination complaint.
  • Prior to raising a complaint, it is best to consult with a professional who can help you construct a strong argument to assist in getting a fair settlement agreement.

What is the time limit for making a discrimination claim?

There is no time limit for making a discrimination claim. However, it is important to note that claims may be more difficult to prove if they are made many years after the alleged discrimination occurred. Therefore, it is advisable to file a claim as soon as possible after the event in question. You usually have to make a claim to the tribunal within 3 months of your employment ending or the problem happening.

What evidence is needed to make a discrimination claim?

There is a burden of proof to show that discrimination occurred. This includes proving that the person or group was treated differently than others in a similar situation and that this difference was based on an illegal reason such as race, gender, or disability. Additionally, it must be shown that the discrimination had a negative impact on the person or group, and that it was not simply a matter of preference or coincidence.

Using employment laws tactfully for your benefit

If you feel that your employer is not following the proper employment laws, you may want to take action. However, it is important to be tactful in how you approach this situation. You don’t want to make any waves or cause any problems for yourself. Instead, try to talk to your employer about the issue and see if they are willing to correct the problem. If not, you may need to consult with a solicitor to see what your next steps should be in your employment law dispute.
