Discrimination in Employment Contracts Explained
The law states that certain basic conditions must be met within all contracts of employment. Examples of these include statutory sick pay, and stating the normal working hours expected of employees. Such requirements ensure that all employees are afforded the same basic rights, and are not discriminated against.
Sometimes, contracts of employment fail to meet the required standards, and can lead to employment discrimination because of this. Such discrimination would potentially occur if, for example, two employees were doing the same job, but only one of the employees had statutory sick pay written into their contract. Another might be if an employer refused to make reasonable changes to a new mother’s working hours, or did not permit the required maternity leave.
There are of course numerous examples of employment contracts being discriminatory, and it is important to seek expert legal advice if you are involved in such a dispute. Goodharts can help you.
