Don't delay if you have been discriminated against at work!

Are you thinking of making a race discrimination against your employer or are you an employer looking to protect yourself against a race discrimination claims?
Very recently the leader of the UKIP party’s girlfriend made racist remarks about Meaghan Markel. Stories like this often hit the headlines and remind us that racism and discrimination is still very much part of our lives.
A few weeks ago we were told about a Claimant who had been called a “fat ginger pikey”, “salad dodger” and “fat yoda”. His claim for race discrimination in the Employment Tribunal failed. Although the comments were clearly shocking, the Claimant was unsuccessful because the Tribunal took his failure to complain promptly to mean that he was not actually offended. However, the Tribunal could have found discrimination if the circumstances had been even slightly different.
