Diversity and Equality

Complex diversity and equality issues often come to the fore in the workplace. Whether you are defending a claim of sexual harassment against a senior member of staff, grappling with your obligations under the gender pay gap reporting rules or reviewing your policies and procedures, we can help.

Our work sees us work closely with our clients to help them deal with issues such as:

  • handling the exit of a persistent poor performer with a suspected disability.

  • managing complex grievances involving harassment or discrimination complaints.

  • making redundancy dismissals which impact maternity leavers.

  • defending employment tribunal litigation for discrimination based on sex (including equal pay), pregnancy / maternity, race, disability, age, religion or belief, sexual orientation, or gender reassignment, and associated claims for harassment and victimisation.

  • advising on “family friendly” matters, such as policies on maternity, paternity, adoption and shared parental leave and pay; requests for flexible working; time off for dependants.

  • conducting equal pay audits and advising on gender pay gap reporting requirements.

  • reviewing recruitment practices to ensure compliance with equality legislation.

In summary, our experts can advise you on all issues related to diversity and equality, which include some of the most important on the HR agenda today.
