Have you been marginalised or side-lined or had social interaction with colleagues suddenly stop when they have discovered your sexual orientation?
Have you been bullied or harassed because you are perceived as being ‘different’ as a result of your sexuality?
Have job opportunities or promotions suddenly disappeared when your sexuality has become apparent? We can help.

We will treat your situation discreetly and with empathy. We will support you through whatever process is necessary to resolve your situation, whether that is through a grievance, a settlement agreement or an Employment Tribunal claim.
