Discrimination is currently the fastest growing practice area
Discrimination is an issue which is very much on the mind of every employer – whether private or public. The EU regulation of the area and the advent of the Danish Board of Equal Treatment in particular have made this one of the busiest areas for firms like ours.
We advise on how to draft anti-discrimination policies, train managers and design recruitment and dismissal procedures to minimise the risk of claims. And we represent employers who are faced with discrimination claims.
Discrimination and differential treatment litigation is currently where employers in both the private and public sector face the largest claims within the area of labour and employment law, and the cases are also some of the most complicated because they involve Danish as well as EU statutory law and case law.
"At Norrbom Vinding, you will have the most experienced litigators arguing your case, and we defend employers almost on a weekly basis against discrimination claims"
