The Equality Act 2010 prohibits discrimination based upon your sexual orientation or perceived sexual orientation. All forms of discrimination including sexual orientation discrimination can be particularly harmful and upsetting that’s why we are here to help.

You may have been the subject to comments, insults or banter based upon your sexual orientation. You may have a line manager who excludes you from meetings that you should be invited to or passes you over for promotion because of your sexual orientation.

If you have suffered sexual orientation discrimination at work or during the recruitment process, then you must act quickly. You have three months, less one day, from the date of the last discriminatory act to start a complaint at an employment tribunal. You can bring complaints against your employer and individual perpetrators of the discrimination or harassment.

Before you can do this however you must first submit your claim to the Advisory Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) so they can establish whether your employer will agree to ‘early conciliation’. This can take up to a month but the period by which you must submit your claim to the employment tribunal will be extended by the same period. Where ACAS fails you may then be able to file a claim at an employment tribunal.

Whichever funding route you choose, you can rest assure that our experienced solicitors will always do their utmost to keep costs as low as possible.
