Discrimination, Bullying & Harassment (Employment)

Discrimination, Bullying & Harassment

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

Diversity, discrimination and harassment cases are often complex, and the stakes can be high, both financially and emotionally, often causing lasting damage to reputations. The right strategic and legal advice is crucial in navigating such a legal minefield, whether bringing or defending claims, or working to prevent claims and manage risk. This has become even more critical in the wake of the #MeToo movement, which has shone a spotlight on harassment in the workplace.

We have a wealth of experience advising on diversity and inclusion and acting in discrimination, bullying and harassment cases, as well as a growing number of equal pay claims. In all we offer pragmatic advice and, where necessary, we know how to apply appropriate force through litigation, while managing the short and long-term reputational issues for all involved. We are one of few firms acting at the highest level for both employers and employees: whether it is an individual bringing a claim in the Employment Tribunal or High Court, or an employer seeking to defend or resolve it. This gives us a unique understanding of and ability to advise on strategies deployed by both sides. 

We also work with organisations to improve diversity and prevent claims. By providing innovative training through our Mishcon Enable training product, we raise managers' awareness of equality and diversity in the workplace, helping them to spot common pitfalls and recognise when to ask for help.
