Equality and Discrimination

Logo for Equality and Human Rights CommissionDiscrimination

The Equality Act 2010 protects you from discrimination at work, in education, as a consumer, when using public services, when buying or renting property and as a member or guest of a private club or association

You are also protected from discrimination if you are associated with someone who has a ‘protected characteristic’, for example a family member or friend or if you have complained about discrimination or supported someone else’s claim.

Positive Action

Positive action can be legally taken to help people with a ‘protected characteristic’ if they:

Are at a disadvantage
Have particular needs
Are under-represented in an activity or type of work
