The main areas of employment discrimination at work are usually on the grounds of:
- Age Discrimination
- Race Discrimination
- Sex Discrimination
We are most regularly called upon to act on behalf of employees who strongly believe they were discriminated against at work in favour of another person for promotion or for a specific task because they were too old or too young, or because of their colour, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
Prohibition of discrimination on the grounds of a disability was introduced in Cyprus in 2000, which recognises the right of persons with disabilities to work on an equal basis with others. In 2007, an amendment imposed an obligation on employers to provide “reasonable accommodation” so long as the burden on the employer is not disproportionate.
Michael Legal Firm can offer expert experience and advice to an individual with a disability who strongly feels they wish to pursue a case against an employer on the grounds of discrimination, which could include, lack of wheelchair access via a ramp or mechanical lift, or a disabled toilet.
