Employment law Section Icon

Seamus Maguire and Co Solicitors have vast experience dealing with discrimination cases in the workplace.

The Employment Equality Acts 1998 to 2011 outlaw discrimination in work-related areas such as pay, vocational training, access to employment, work experience and promotion. Cases involving harassment and victimisation at work are also covered by the Acts.

The nine grounds on which discrimination is outlawed by the Employment Equality Acts are as follows:

  • Gender
  • Civil status
  • Family status
  • Sexual orientation
  • Religious belief
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Race colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins
  • Membership of the Traveller community

A person who claims to have been discriminated against or subjected to victimisation or not to be receiving equal pay or a benefit under an equality clause may seek redress by referring the case to the Director General of the Workplace Relations Commission under the Employment Equality Acts 1998 to 2011 .

Seamus Maguire and Co Solicitors can represent you in your claim for redress relating to discrimination on the grounds of gender in the Circuit Court . For an appointment please phone 01 8211288
