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 were you victimised? Please note it is extremely busy at present due to the ongoing situation so there will likely be a delay in replying, but I will get back to you at some point today. Thanks
Ok just to clarify – victimisation is when you have or were about to make an official complaint about discrimination due to a protected characteristic, such as gender, age, race, religion, disability. The employer has then penalised you or treated you detrimentally because of this complaint – that is what is victimisation. Has this happened here?
Thank you. Even if you are self-employed you still have protection against discrimination, which is covered under the Equality Act 2010. It states that a person must not be treated detrimentally because of a protected characteristic, which includes race/nationality. Victimisation is what I described above, where you are penalised for having raised or trying to raise a discrimination complaint. So you can consider pursuing a discrimination claim against the company and/or people who were guilty of the discriminator behaviour. However, as you are self-employed you cannot do this in the Employment Tribunal and would have to do it in the County Court.
Does this answer your query?
You would need to complete form N1:
Oh it’s not an online form you have to send it to the court
All the best
It would be posted and you do not need to include documents yet, that comes at a later stage, you will be instructed by the court about it
Hi for the monetary value you have to put the value of compensation you are seeking. You would need to determine approximately what you are after to claim it. As to legal representatives we are not representing you so you cannot mention us – that is only if you have formally engaged someone to represent you which you have not done so leave it blank
These depend on how much you are claiming…
Have a look at EX50 which is the document with court fees – just Google for it
you still have to claim for something to start with based on what you are claiming for – after all, your position is that these things have happened and then eventually the initial figure can be adjusted as necessary
