Many people still receive less favourable treatment at work based on who they are, and this can cause a number of problems. Our experienced legal advisors can help you understand what protection you have against discrimination under law, and if necessary challenge your employer.

Are you being discriminated against?


If you are receiving less favourable treatment based on a characteristic protected under the Equality Act, then your employer may be breaking the rules on discrimination.


The Equality Act protects you from discrimination because of your:

  • age

  • race

  • sex

  • sexual orientation

  • pregnancy and maternity

  • gender reassignment

  • religion or belief

  • marriage or civil partnership

  • disability.

These are known as 'protected characteristics'.

Employers must follow the Equality Act so that you are not put at a disadvantage for holding a protected characteristic. 

How PAL can help

As a team of trade union specialists we have vast experience in helping employees challenge discrimination at work.


Our legal experts can use their knowledge and experience to provide discrimination advice or representation in any formal process. We would guide you through the process, explaining the provisions of the Equality Act to the employer and ensuring they treat you fairly.


If the issue is connected to a long term medical conditions (disability) we can ensure they follow the rules by providing you with reasonable adjustments within your job.
