This area of law is in constant development and in the last years the prohibition against discrimination on the grounds of age or disability specifically, has given rise to many cases in the EU Court of Justice and the national courts, and therefore it can be difficult to maintain an overview of the legal rights and obligations.

We have an extensive and thorough experience in counseling public employers on how they ensure compliance with the complex rules on discrimination and equal treatment. Damkjær Lauritzen assists inter alia with drafting and introduction of employee policies, recruitment processes, changes in the employments terms, long-time illness, dismissals and severance agreements.

If a claim for compensation is raised based on discrimination, we represent the employer at the courts and other relevant fora.
