Recruitment and promotion
If you believe that you have been discriminated against during a recruitment or promotion process or that the recruitment process has not been followed properly or applied fairly, you may have a claim against your employer.
We can help you by advising you as to whether you have a claim against your employer and the strengths and weaknesses of such a claim in order that you can completely understand your legal position and rights.
Employers should follow a specific process when recruiting staff:
making an offer of employment, subject to conditions where appropriate (and, where necessary, withdrawing the offer); and
At no point in this process should the employer discriminate against the applicant. Legally, discrimination can happen at any point in the process, starting from the way in which the vacancy is advertised through to promotions.
Our employment team have an extensive range of experience in advising individuals who believe they have not been treated fairly and therefore can provide you with the legal advice you need to ensure you can move forward with confidence.
