Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
Are you able to provide some background information please?
Thank you. Leave it with me for now, although please note it is extremely busy at present due to the ongoing situation so there may be a delay in replying, but I will get back to you at some point today. Please do not reply in the meantime. Many thanks
Hi, my sincere apologies for the delay, for some reason this question dropped off my ‘to do’ lost.
Going back to your query, it is a very general query in some ways, in a sense that each claim will depend on tis own circumstances. Therefore, it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to say what an Employment Tribunal would be looking at to determine if there is a successful claim. Obviously, the elements of a discriminatory offence must be present where someone has either been treated detrimentally because of a protected characteristic, or there has been a provision, criterion or practice which places them at a disadvantage because of such a protected characteristic.
AN Employment Tribunal can also consider breach of contract claims by an employee and the limit is £25,000.
Does this answer your query?
