Vardags — when you need to win

I have been discriminated against at work because of my race

A person’s race includes colour, nationality and ethnic origins. It is unlawful to discriminate against someone because of their race in the workplace.

If you have been treated less favourably than another employee because of your race, or the race of someone who you associate with, for example, your partner, then this could amount to racial discrimination.

The employment team at Vardags can advise you on the most appropriate action for you to take based on your situation, and ensure that you get the best possible outcome.

We offer a free consultation to qualifying individuals. Please call our confidential enquiry line on 020 7404 9390 or email us. Lines are staffed 24 hours.

How can Vardags help?


All employers should promote an equal opportunities workplace. There should be a clear policy in place demonstrating a commitment to diversity at work.

A lack of diversity in the workplace could point to unconscious bias.

If you are pursuing a claim for race discrimination and your employer’s equal opportunities track record is poor or where your employer is only paying lip service to an equal opportunities policy, this could be relevant evidence for your case.

If ageist comments are being made about you, you may have a claim for harassment which is a type of age discrimination. For example, if a comment is made that you are too old to get to grips with technology at work, this would amount to age discrimination.
