Race discrimination in the workplace and society is clearly not acceptable in any form. Significant legislation has been introduced over recent decades to tackle such behaviour. In terms of employment law the workplace is no different to wider society and this means racial discrimination cannot be allowed or tolerated. No employee should have to suffer such treatment and no employer can allow or tolerate such behaviour. Failure to do so can lead to the likelihood of a tribunal claim being raised against the employer.
If you are in any way affected by racial discrimination in the workplace then you should seek to obtain legal advice as to the remedies available to you. Employees should contact us on 01382 281 550 for advice on discrimination issues in the workplace.
