Anti-Discrimination Law

EMA Legal lawyers have a comprehensive theoretical and practical understanding of the current laws governing discrimination.

Anti-discrimination legislation affects many aspects of daily life and commercial activity. The consequences for employers and others who may be sued personally can be significant. Employers can be required to pay significant compensation for harassment that occurs between employees in their workplace. To minimise this risk employers need to act proactively and with due diligence. EMA Legal provides strategic advice to help employers avoid discrimination and works with employers to manage any discrimination issues that arise.
