Discrimination Is Against The Law

Thanks to funding from the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Chesterfield and Nottingham Law Centres are offering free legal advice and representation aimed at helping people to work and access to goods and services without discrimination and harassment.

This is for people who lives in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire and have been discriminated against because of age, gender, race, disability, transgender issues, sexual orientation, faith, religious or non religious belief.

Have you experienced discrimination or harassment, for example, by:

  • Colleagues, manager or employer?
  • Banks or building societies?
  • Cinemas or theatres?
  • Doctors or dentists?
  • Hospitals or clinics?
  • Leisure centres, hotels or B&Bs?
  • Police
  • Public and private landlords?
  • Council or other public body?
  • Shops or markets?
  • Transport providers?

A person or organisation may discriminate against someone for a variety of reasons, but no matter whether it is based on race, colour, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religious or non religious belief – it is unlawful and the specialist workers at the Law Centres can help.
