It is against the law for an employer to discriminate against an employee on the basis of their race or ethnicity. This prohibition also extends to discriminating against someone because of their nationality or national origin. It is also unlawful for an employer to discriminate against any worker on the basis of their association with any racial or ethnic group.

As with all discrimination matters the governing legislation is the Equality Act 2010. The legislation is wide-ranging and employers must ensure that they have clear policies in place to ensure that such forms of discrimination are not occurring within the workplace. Should a complaint be made by any employee about discrimination on grounds of race the employer should act swiftly to implement these procedures.  If as an employee you feel you have been suffered detrimental treatment due to your race, ethnicity or nationality then you may have been discriminated against. This covers matters such as promotion, recruitment, training and the definition is wide ranging.

At Employment Law Aberdeen our employment lawyers routinely advise employees in relation to discrimination issues and Employment Tribunal claims arising out of such situations. We can provide you with initial advice which may be enough to resolve the situation. However, if the matter requires you to proceed to a full Employment Tribunal claim on the basis of race discrimination then we can help you with all aspects of your claim.
