Vardags — when you need to win

There is discrimination in my workplace

At Vardags we are experts in the area of discrimination in the workplace. You cannot be discriminated against at work because of:

1. Your age

2. Your race

3. A disability

4. Gender reassignment

5. Being married or in a civil partnership

6. Pregnancy and maternity

7. Religion or belief

8. Your sex

9. Your sexual orientation

Discrimination can be a daunting thing to tackle and is sometimes subtle. If you are concerned about discrimination at work, we can provide you with advice on your situation and guide you through the steps you can take to protect yourself.

We will advise you on the best strategy for you going forward based on your ideal outcome, whether that is tackling discrimination at work head on whilst aiming to remain in your job, exiting work under a settlement or bringing a Tribunal case.

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.

Gender pay gap reporting has highlighted the discrepancies in male and female pay across many organisations and has opened a serious debate.

Whilst a gender pay gap does not in itself demonstrate unequal pay it may be the starting point to investigate any pay inequalities and discrimination.

We have significant experience in advising on equal pay claims and a strong track record of success in obtaining court orders requiring transparency of pay in the most difficult of circumstances, particularly in the financial services sector.
