Discrimination in the workplace

All employees should be treated equally. Unfortunately this is not always the case and some people find they are treated unfairly because of a personal characteristic. This is known as workplace discrimination and is not permitted in Ireland.Discrimination in the Workplace Ireland

Discrimination in the workplace can take many forms, but generally means that someone is being treated less favourably than other staff because of:

  • Gender
  • Civil status
  • Family status
  • Sexual orientation
  • Religion
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Race
  • Being a member of the Traveller community

If you believe you have suffered workplace discrimination, you need to talk to a legal expert. A solicitor who specialises in workplace discrimination will be able to say whether or not your employment rights have been breached. If so, you will be able to claim workplace discrimination compensation.

Workplace discrimination – what can you do?

At Gibson & Associates, our team of employment solicitors has considerable experience in workplace discrimination. During a free initial consultation, we will be able to advise you upon your rights, explaining whether you can claim workplace discrimination.

If we believe there is a case to be answered, we will help you remedy the situation. This might involve attempting to resolve the dispute directly with your employer, or taking your case to an Equality Tribunal.

If you choose to proceed to a Tribunal, we will prepare everything on your behalf, representing you on the day. Our dedicated lawyers will support you every step of the way, providing guidance and advice at each stage.

The decision made by an Equality Tribunal is final and legally-binding. If successful, claim workplace discrimination compensation may be awarded. Other demands can also be made which your employer (or former employer) must adhere to.
