Our highly-rated employment team offers specialist expertise to organisations in need of advice on discrimination law and equality claims.

Within our employment law team, we have a number of specialist discrimination and equality solicitors who have an excellent track record in successfully defending discrimination claims for employers.  

As stated in the Equality Act 2010, discrimination is unlawful where it is on the grounds of sex, gender re-assignment, pregnancy/maternity, race, disability, age, sexual orientation or religion and belief. There is no limit on the amount of compensation that can be awarded for unlawful discrimination by an Employment Tribunal, and a discrimination claim is a significant risk for employers in terms of costs, management time and reputational damage. 

If a discrimination claim has been made against you, we will advise you on prospects, financial exposure and strategy, and represent you before the employment tribunal. We can also help you to negotiate a settlement on the best possible terms, if that is your preference.

In the event that the decision is made to proceed to the Employment Tribunal, our expert discrimination lawyers, based in Edinburgh and Glasgow, will robustly defend your position. 

As well as advising on discrimination claims, we provide advice on day-to day issues, such as absence management, which may have discrimination implications. 

We also provide training for employers to minimise the risk of a discrimination claim and to put you in the best position to defend a claim if one is raised against your organisation.
