Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
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.
How long have you worked there for?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. You have the right not to be treated differently or detrimentally because of your race or nationality, so if this is happening at work and either it is the employer who is doing it, or they do nothing to stop it, you could take it further. Whilst you can raise an official complaint in worn by going through the grievance procedure, in the end you may have to make a claim in the Employment Tribunal as it is the only legal option. Whilst you may have talked to ACAS already, you need to get a certificate from them to allow you to proceed to the Employment Tribunal. If you do not have that then contact them again to start what is known as the early conciliation process and get that certificate, which you can then use to make an official tribunal claim against the employer.

You do not have to go to work if you do not feel you can return
