This case is raising funds for its stretch target. Your pledge will be collected within the next 24-48 hours (and it only takes two minutes to pledge!)

I am a non-practising solicitor and, I allege in my claim, that whilst working as an Immigration advisor at Sangam Association of Asian Women, I was subjected to repeated sex discrimination by my employer and I was paid less than a male colleague.

I am bringing a claim against my previous employer following numerous occasions of discrimination. My employer was concerned that because I was married, I may one day become pregnant. My employer was also concerned that some immigration cases might be too difficult for me to deal with simply because I was a woman. This is despite the fact that I was over qualified for the job. I was denied promotions, new opportunities and consistently undervalued.

I was also paid less than my male work colleague despite the fact that I was more qualified than he was and despite the fact that I brought in more in fees than he did (while working fewer hours.)

My employer’s campaign of discrimination was all the more traumatising coming from an organisation who claim to campaign for and support the rights of Asian women. Rather than supporting me, my employers displayed clear prejudicial and discriminatory views against me.

The employer’s conduct towards me also meant that the organisation was less able to support the vulnerable people the organisation was meant to help.

I am crowdfunding to pay for legal representation to take my case to the employment tribunal. I believe no woman should be paid less for being a woman or be discriminated against because she may one day have children. I believe also that no woman should be passed over for promotion or denied opportunity because of a perception that she is less capable than a male colleague.
