Human Rights and The Equality Act.

Eagle Chambers undertakes all manner of Human Rights, Equality and Discrimination protocols from the perspective of the organisation and the affected party in a preventative or compliance perspective, and in a retrospective mediation and remedial capacity. Our services range from the enforcement of legal obligations such as Equality, Inclusion and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which includes assistance with compliance and data breaches.

The Human Rights Act makes it illegal to discriminate on a wide range of grounds including 'sex, race, colour, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, association with a national minority, property, birth or other status'.

Eagle Chambers LLP can guide your company through this minefield and ensure that your employees, members and associates are properly and fairly treated keeping your organisation on the straight and narrow. 

Our services extend to individual representation and mediation services.

What the Equality Act says about disability discrimination

The Equality Act 2010 says that you must not discriminate or be discriminated against because:
i) you have a disability
ii) someone thinks you have a disability (this is known as discrimination by perception)
iii) you are connected to someone with a disability (this is known as discrimination by association)

It is not unlawful discrimination to treat a disabled person more favourably than a non-disabled person.

Types of Disability Discrimination.

There are six main types of disability discrimination:

* direct discrimination
* indirect discrimination
* failure to make reasonable adjustments
* discrimination arising from disability
* harassment
* victimisation
