Help with Discrimination Overview

Jarmans Solicitors are here to help you as a result of discrimination

Discrimination occurs when you are treated unfairly or unjustly because of your background or who you are. People can be discriminated against in all areas of their life, from work to finding a place to live. In the UK, the Equality Act 2010 protects individuals from discrimination and also protects people who associate with them and are discriminated against as a result.

This includes discrimination by:

  • Your employer
  • Healthcare providers
  • Businesses and organisations providing services
  • Landlords, housing associations and estate agents
  • Transport providers
  • Schools, colleges and higher education providers
  • Public bodies

The Equality Act 2010 lists nine protected characteristics that it’s unlawful to discriminate against or treat unfairly. They are:

  • Disability
  • Race
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Religious beliefs
  • Age
  • Marriage or civil partnership (in employment only)
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Gender reassignment
  • Sex

If you feel that you have been discriminated against you have a right to complain, you are also protected if you feel that you have suffered discrimination as a result of that complaint. Jarmans Solicitors are always happy to advise anyone who feels that they may have suffered discrimination and understand that, sometimes, it can be difficult to know which way to turn. If you would like to speak to someone who is experienced in Equality Law, speak to us today.
