The Employment Team at Meaby&Co have an abundance of experience in advising both individuals and businesses within the LGBTQ+ community.
For individuals we advise sensitively on unlawful discrimination in the workplace based on sexual orientation, sex, gender, gender reassignment, and marital status in addition to the other protected characteristics in law such as disability and age.
Even though the legal rights of LGBTQ+ people have been greatly improved in recent years it is still an unfortunate fact that discriminatory practices in the workplace still continue.
Our mission is to seek to protect individuals who are having a difficult time at work and in the most serious situations to seek justice and compensation.
For businesses we recognise that there are many good employers out there who embrace diversity and inclusivity and who want to ensure that they adopt best practices and have the best policies in place to ensure equality of treatment for all of their employees including their LGBTQ+ employees.
We can provide a range of services to include updating policies and procedures fit for the 21st century, as well as advising on specific workplace issues involving LGBTQ+ issues and rights, with the aim of minimising overall legal risk.
