Discrimination is defined in the legislation as occurring where a person is treated less favourably than another is, has been or would be treated in a comparable situation on any of the grounds specified above. Virtually all aspects of employment are covered in this regard, including access to employment, conditions of employment, dismissal, access to promotion and training, experience for or in relation to employment, promotion/re-grading, classification of posts and rights to equal pay.

If you believe you have been discriminated against in the workplace you should seek the advice of an experienced employment law solicitor at the earliest opportunity as the time within which you have to refer a complaint to the Equality Tribunal is generally within six months of the occurrence of the act of discrimination.

We have extensive experience advocating for clients before the Equality Tribunal in these matters.
