Discrimination Overview - Jarmans Solicitors

Help with Discrimination Overview

Jarmans Solicitors are here to help you if you feel you have been treated unfairly.

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:



Sexual Orientation

Religious beliefs


Marriage or civil partnership (in employment only)

Pregnancy and maternity

Gender reassignment


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.
