What is it that makes you feel that you have had poor and unfair treatment compared to anyone else? Have you been injured and gradually found yourself in a difficult financial situation? Did you take extra risks or did you not personally know the person who treated you badly? Were you treated badly at work by a supervisor or someone in authority? Did you deserve to be treated in a poor manner and should you be? Are you feeling helpless and unable to carry on with life confidently?
Asking questions like these can lead to thinking clearly about the situation you have been or going through. You may be wondering, what is unfair treatment? Poor conduct often has a common trait where there is a failure to retain an expected level of service and is regarded as negligence. Many factors contribute to negligence and imbalanced treatment. It is very likely that your case of unfair treatment will be different to many other similar claims and you will benefit from expert advice that is personalised for you.
Changing your path of life to make it positive and productive, is to make something of yourself. Imagine you had suffered from poor treatment and an injury where it seriously affects your life. You can no longer do everything that you used to do without some sort of support. It can be of little help or a lot, but whichever it is, it does take your independence away from you. What happens when you can no longer earn the same amount or even reach your potential earning power?
It paints a grim picture and many do fall into this miserable state.

What is unfair treatment? It is defined as being treated in a different way to others or where others are unfairly favoured over you. For some people it may be because of who they are. This is known as discrimination.
The Equality Act 2010 protects people from discrimination and an act against it is classed as an offence. Being unfairly treated and discriminated against is not pleasant but you can do something about it. Get legal help to represent your case to improve your situation and quite possibly others who may be in the same position.
Do check that you are being treated unfairly at work and how it is prejudicial. There are many reasons that you may be discriminated against. Some examples of unfair treatment at work can stem from discrimination such as age, race, sex, disability, and marriage status. If you are unsure, then speak to one of our expert solicitors to consider the factors in your claim for eligibility.
Generally, we can give information to recognise unfair treatment at your workplace and attempt to determine the level of discrimination you may have suffered. However, after reading the information here we recommend that you contact us. With many elements of the law accessible it is likely that some claims seek alternative association to succeed rather than what is usually observed. So, to discuss your case on its own individual merits give us a call on 0800 2922 182.
To identify if you are a victim of unfair treatment at work, have a look at the nine protected qualities listed below as stated in the Equality Act 2010. It will help you to establish the type of discrimination that you may be facing and if the behaviour is unfair within the section of the Act, then there is possibility to take further action.
Chapter One of the Equality Act sets out the protected characteristics for discrimination. They are in the order of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation. It is clearly stated that any discriminatory behaviour on the basis of the above characteristics is illegal and can be subject to court action.
Identifying the category your poor treatment falls into is necessary to allow you to constructively demonstrate how the behaviour was unfair. See the areas below to understand how it closely matches your details and to extend into your case.
Direct discrimination is when you are treated differently or inferior to someone because of a certain protected quality which could be age or a disability. Indirect discrimination is when there is a rule or method of working encompassing all employees but it has an adverse effect on some people due to a protected characteristic and puts them at a disadvantage.
The Equality Act 2010 imposes a duty on employers to make reasonable adjustments for a person with one or more disability. Things like ensuring that a wheelchair user is provided with a ramp to access a place of work is a reasonable adjustment. The consensus is to remove barriers that disabled people face and allow them to use the same services that everyone else enjoys.
When a person suffers damage, whether physical or emotional, caused by a person who dislikes their right to a protected quality, then it is a form of oppression. This is also known as victimisation. It is unlawful under the Equality Act and applies to victimising those who performed or intended to perform a protected act where they uphold the action against discrimination.
It is a nuisance when you are harassed by a person who engages in unwanted activities which conflicts with your rights of a protected characteristic. It is classed as harassment when it leaves you humiliated, violated, in fear, offended or even dishonoured. Sexual nature type harassment is becoming a common offence where gender reassignment is discriminated against and includes unfair treatment from an offender who was unable to handle rejection from sexual advances.
Well, you have already decided to take action. You did that by clicking onto this website. A positive action! Now you can take control and recognise if you can claim compensation for the poor and unfair treatment you suffered whether it was from a dentist or a builder. Things like unfair dismissal can come into this category. Remember that poor treatment which was due to negligence is claimable and if you are not sure then 101% Compensation is able to advise you.
What is the reason for you to claim compensation for unfair treatment at work? Ask yourself, “Was this my fault?” and if the answer is no or reasoned not to be, then the least you deserve is some way of getting things back to how it was before the poor treatment. Unfortunately, it is not always realistically possible to put things back to how it was. For instance, it is certainly not suggested that a broken leg will be whole again and free from defects.
What can be done for you is to get you the additional support you need for your injuries or loss. This can be in the form of compensation award which you use to obtain specialist equipment or other requirement. Any expenses you incurred is taken into account and reimbursed. Financial loss is also considered and you will be compensated for things like loss of earnings. Again, each case is individual and your case may need compensation for sundries not mentioned here which you can claim for.
For some people it can be difficult to prove that the bullying at work is prejudiced and find that they are unable to cope with it. The next action is to resign from employment. Have you had to leave your job in this manner? You may be able to claim for constructive dismissal where the employer is brought in front of a tribunal.
Constructive dismissal is where an employer’s conduct is a serious breach of contract and warrants an employee to resign because of it. This is seen as the employee being forced to be dismissed.
As well as proving that the employer has acted unjustly, there must be a significant breakdown in trust and confidence, or failure of a contract’s condition. It must be the cause of you leaving and it is important that you mention in your resignation that you feel or see yourself as being constructively dismissed.
When there is a single serious event that breaches the terms of contact, it can initiate a constructive dismissal case. However, in other cases a continuing series of incidents can aggregate as a breach and upon resigning you would have left due to the preceding incidents.
Care should be taken not to be understood as to accept the unreasonable behaviour, which can be allowing you to be bullied or changing your working hours irrationally, by your offending person. It can be in the form of an email or a disclaimer where you sign to agree to the changes in working conditions.
We recommend you get in touch to discuss your personal circumstances so that we can advise you properly. We may offer other options if you have been treated unfair. For example, if you are considering resigning, it is possible for you to still work using the ‘under protest’ entitlement.
At this point it is important to ask yourself, “What would I do if I know what should be done?” Quite simply you are reassured that a Unfairly Treated At Work Claim is what you deserve for something that is not your fault in your workplace. If that is how you feel, then obviously you are going to go ahead and claim not 100% Compensation but 101% Compensation. You are going choose one of the following options to get the BEST DEAL for the poor treatment you suffered!
