Using your rights

New law in force

The Equality Act came into force on 1 October 2010. Some of the information on this page may be out of date.

If you think you may have been discriminated against, you need to consider your options carefully. You may decide to bring a claim in court or in the employment tribunal, or you may consider that your complaint can be better resolved another way. This section provides information to help you make these decisions and guide you through the legal process.

Details of legislation, regulations and questionnaires are under key legislation

Our helpline can give you advice and information to help you work out your options and what steps to take next.
