Equal opportunities

With 'an abundance of quality across the board,' the team at Farrer is praised for its tactical approach and range of legal knowledge.

Chambers UK

As one of the country’s leading employment practices, we have an enviable reputation and track record across the full range of employment-related issues. One of our strongest areas is, however, equal opportunities having handled a significant number of high-profile discrimination claims both in the private and public sectors.

We provide advice on all aspects of equal opportunities in the workplace, including best practice in diversity management, equal pay audits, as well as sex, age, race and disability discrimination claims.

In-depth knowledge

Equal opportunities matters require an in-depth knowledge of existing discrimination law, together with experience in applying this knowledge to specific circumstances. Our team of specialists will work with you to fully understand the issues surrounding your situation, as well as understanding your particular aims and requirements.  We will then work with you to try and achieve a swift, considered and, where possible, amicable solution to any case.

Where matters cannot be resolved amicably and do progress to formal Tribunal proceedings, we will be on hand to guide you through every step of the process.

We also offer regular updates, seminars and training sessions, aimed at both HR teams and managers.  This then enables you and your management staff to understand the issues and their relevant responsibilities, thereby reducing the risk of any problems before they arise.
