Serving in the Armed Forces is very different from having an ordinary job – which is probably why you joined up in the first place! But from a legal point of view, you’re still an employee, and the MoD is an Equal Opportunities Employer. That means have the same rights as your counterparts on Civvy Street when it comes to fairness and discrimination.
At Forces Law, we can advise you if you feel you’ve been discriminated against on the grounds of your ethnic origin, sex, age, physical ability or sexual orientation. We can also help you make a formal complaint if you’ve suffered harassment, victimisation or bullying. If your grievances can’t be resolved, we’ll support you in further action, including taking your case to an Employment Tribunal.
What’s more, we work with service people at every stage in life. So once you’ve left the forces, you can still contact us for help and advice on employment issues in your new civilian career.
For more information, or to seek advice, you can contact our 24-hour helpline on 0845 601 1260 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
