Young people: know 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 Some of the information on this page may be out of date.

Young women and men may find themselves being treated unfairly because of their gender, age, disability, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation or transgender status.  This can happen whether they are at school, school leavers making career choices, new employees, part-time workers, students in further or higher education, apprentices or trainees.

We have put together some advice resources that should be useful if you, or some you know, are experiencing discrimination as a young person.
