Discrimination laws protect people when at work and when also accessing goods and services. We can guide you through the rights you have to equality within the workplace and beyond.
We offer specialist discrimination law advice to those who live in Newcastle and the surrounding areas. Specific areas of advice include:
It is unlawful for your age to be the cause of less favourable treatment in your workplace or in vocational training.
Religion and belief
Your religion or belief, or those of somebody else, should not interfere with your right to be treated fairly at work, at school, in shops or while accessing public services such as health care and housing.
Whether you are gay, lesbian, bisexual or straight should not put you at a disadvantage.
If you have a physical or mental impairment, you have specific rights that protect you against discrimination. Employers and service providers are obliged to make adjustments for you.
Gender equality - sex discrimination
Women and men should not be treated unfairly because of their gender, because they are married or because they are raising a family.
Wherever you were born, wherever your parents came from, whatever the colour of your skin, you have a right to be treated fairly.
Trans people should be able to live with dignity - there are protections for some of the forms of discrimination that trans people experience.
