Discrimination for Employers

Receiving a claim for discrimination from a prospective, current or ex-employee can be deeply concerning, especially if there is no basis for such action or it results from a genuine misunderstanding.

Not only can such claims be time-consuming, employers facing a discrimination claim may be concerned about the potential impact on their reputation, both personally and organisationally.

At Askews Legal, our employment law solicitors have the expertise and experience to handle any claim for discrimination against your organisation. We can take the claim from your shoulders, allowing you to focus on your core role, confident in the knowledge that the matter is in the best possible hands. Where possible, we will use Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods such as mediation, negotiation, or arbitration to bring the matter to a close with the minimum of impact for all concerned. Our specialist Employment Law Solicitors have been recognised in the Legal 500 and have a robust reputation for providing guidance on handling discrimination law matters to businesses in Coventry, Warwickshire and across the Midlands.
