Discrimination claims can be extremely damaging for a business.
Under the Equality Act 2010, employees can bring claims on a range of grounds including Age, Disability, Race or Sexual Orientation. While there are many genuine claims, there are also individuals who will attempt to use them to scare their employer, so you have to be prepared.
Any claim, valid or not, can ruin a business’ reputation. With the potential for unlimited awards, a successful claim could leave your business facing financial ruin.
