Race discrimination

Racial discrimination was the first kind of discrimination to be outlawed in this country. The original statute of 1965 is now incorporated into the Race Relations Act (RRA) 1976. No person should have to tolerate being discriminated against or harassed because of their race, colour, nationality or ethnic origin. The Race Relations Act makes unlawful certain types of treatment and protects us all from being treated less favourably than others because of our race. It does not matter who you work for, or the size of the business.

If you feel that you are being discriminated against on the grounds of your race by your employer then you can make a claim to an Employment Tribunal. There are different ways of discriminating against a person due to their race and indeed an employer may also be liable for the discriminatory act of an employee, carried out in the course of employment, whether or not those actions were done with the employer’s knowledge or approval. If the tribunal finds that discrimination has taken place then you may be awarded damages – including damages for loss of earnings and/or injury to feelings. In addition a Tribunal can make a declaration regarding the rights of the complainant and that the discrimination should cease.

    review rating 5  A team of professionals with complete legal acumen. Really impressed by how they cater their clients and prioritise clients satisfaction. Really good understanding and knowledge of law and on top of it they are always up to date about the current developments and possible upcoming amendments. I would love to highlight the major difference I have seen in regular legal practice and privilege’s practice, they never try to build fortune out of a client. They are very reasonable and a team with high standards and conscience. I am really impressed and satisfied the way they work. Highly recommend.
