Is your equal opportunities policy up to scratch?

Are your selection procedures discriminatory?

Under the Equality Act 2010, discrimination in the workplace is unlawful on the grounds of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or belief. A tribunal claim for discrimination could be particularly damaging for employers, as there is no limit on the amount of compensation that can be awarded.

At Myers & Co in Staffordshire, our experienced employment lawyers work with your company to minimise the risk of such claims. We can review all your employment policies, recruitment and redundancy selection procedures, staff handbook and terms and conditions, quickly and efficiently providing redrafts where necessary.

We can advise on drafting and implementing equal opportunities policies in your company, including compliance training for supervisors and managers.

Should a discrimination claim be raised, we will be at hand to advise you at every stage and provide you with the best representation to defend your position at the employment tribunal proceedings.

Our EmployerAssist service could provide you with further peace of mind, giving you a dedicated helpline to our employment law specialists, a bespoke annual audit, access to our database of contracts and policies and regular updates at a fixed monthly cost.

Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, our specialist employment solicitors offer independent legal advice and representation on all types of employment law problems. To find out more, contact 01782 577000.
