How can you file a workplace discrimination claim in Scotland?
Employment discrimination is a serious problem across Scotland. If you have been fired, passed over for a promotion, or treated unfairly at work because of your race, sex, religion, or disability, you may be able to file a workplace discrimination claim.
To fix a discrimination problem, you could:
- Talk to your employer directly if you have an informal complaint about your job.
- File a grievance with your employer.
- Make a claim to an employment tribunal.
- Not confident in your ability to fix the issue at hand? You could always resign from your job. If you believe you were discriminated against before being let go, you might be eligible for constructive or unfair dismissal.
- Mediation can be a helpful tool in resolving disputes with your employer. A trained mediator will help you and your employer communicate and reach an agreement before taking any legal action.
- Consulting with a professional and constructing a solid argument before raising any complaints makes you more likely to come to a fair settlement agreement.
- Prior to taking legal action, you should attempt to resolve your issue through mediation.
When do I need to file a discrimination claim?
If you believe you have been discriminated against at work, it is important to act as soon as possible. You may be able to file a discrimination claim with the help of an employment discrimination lawyer in Scotland.
It’s important to note that there are time limits in place for filing discrimination claims. You must file a complaint with the EEOC within 90 days of the discriminatory act taking place. So, if you’ve been dealing with discrimination at work for a while, it’s best not to wait any longer before seeking legal help.
What types of evidence can be used to support a discrimination claim?
The person or group claiming discrimination must provide evidence to show that they were treated differently than others in a comparable situation and that this difference was based on an illegal reason such as race, gender, or disability. They must also demonstrate how the discrimination negatively impacted them rather than being a matter of coincidence or personal preference.
