Types of Discrimination
There are many different types of discrimination, all of which fall into two large categories of direct and indirect discrimination. Direct discrimination is when a person is treated unfavourably because of his or her age, sex, race, religion, sexual orientation etc. Indirect discrimination involves a provision criteria, practice, rule or policy that is discriminatory against a person. We at Waldegraves have experience representing employees in all types of discrimination cases, including discrimination involving maternity and parental leave.
Disability discrimination can be especially complex and challenging. The legal definition of disability is: a physical or mental impairment with a long-term impact that affects a person's day-to-day activities. Disability Discrimination is particularly complicated due to the nature of the legal issues involved, the broad definition of disability and the unique aspects of every case. At Waldegraves, we represent the interests of both employers and employees in discrimination cases
