The IURIS team includes lawyers specialised in the field of equality and non-discrimination on various grounds including gender, race, sexual orientation, age, religion and belief, gender identity and disability both in employment as well as in the provision of goods and services.
There is currently more awareness on equality issues and employers are frequently faced with cases of discrimination which often translate into costly settlements and staff turnover. We provide assistance and representation both in court and before the Industrial Tribunal and provide expert advice both to local and foreign clients. We also provide mediation services with the aim of avoiding lengthy judicial proceedings.
We can draft tailor-made sexual harassment policies for companies and advice on equality policies which are updated regularly in accordance with legislation. This ensures the limitation or avoidance of court cases which are not only costly and time-consuming, but can also tarnish employers’ and companies’ reputation in a highly restricted market.
Our clients include private and public sector employers, employees, European-wide networks, associations and civil society.
