Women are effectively working for free for the rest of the year because of the gender pay gap, equality campaigners have said.

According to the Fawcett Society, it will take 60 years to close the gap at the current rate of progress.

Its report found that jobs women do are more likely to be low paid and they are less likely to receive a bonus or progress to the highest job in their organisation.

The society has called for more action from the Government and employers to tackle pay discrimination, job "segregation" and help to get women into senior posts.

An occupational illness is a medical condition caused by work you are doing, or have done in the past.  

 It may be caused by your work activities, or something you have worked with such as asbestos or chemicals.

 Every year thousands of people are diagnosed with medical conditions caused by their work.

A 33-year-old medical researcher died from a cancer usually caused by asbestos, despite no history of being exposed to it, an inquest heard.

Rose Wharton died of mesothelioma at her Oxford home on 20 May, after being diagnosed in September.

Coroner Darren Salter said it was a "very unusual" case, because the illness usually only affects those who worked around asbestos for decades.

He told Oxford Coroner's Court he had never seen a case like it.

Most cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed in people aged between 60 and 80, according to the NHS.

The symptoms of work related conditions can come on suddenly, for example when you start a new job, or they can develop over a period of time.  In the case of Asbestos related illnesses or Bladder Cancer the exposure may have been many years before you detect any symptoms.

Because the symptoms of an occupational illness may not come on until many years after the harmful exposure we have a team of highly experienced specialist qualified lawyers who can investigate your claim even where your employers have gone out of business many years before.

The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers has supplied argument and evidence for years to oppose the government’s obsession with personal injury reform. The basis for reform is completely without merit, yet the government has been intransigent.

Lord Keen made it clear during debate on the Civil Liability Bill that the reforms are ‘policy’ decisions. In relation to a tariff for whiplash injuries, in particular, he said: ‘We are essentially taking a policy decision that there should be a tariff for this form of injury to deal with a very real issue.’

If you've been treated unfairly at work or when applying for a job, it may be unlawful discrimination. Discrimination can be against your ethnic group, your religion and even your age. 

If you’ve been treated differently and worse by an employer and it’s because of who you are, it could be direct discrimination.

If you’ve been discriminated against, you may be able to do something about it.

When is it direct discrimination?
