16 Racial Discrimination
12. The Human Rights Act
The Human Rights Act protects against wide-ranging discrimination – including many types that are not covered by other discrimination laws. However, you can only use it as part of one of the other ‘articles’ (the specific principles) of the act, such as the right to ‘respect for private and family life’.
Also, rights under the Human Rights Act can only be used against a public authority (for example, the police, a local council or the Benefits Agency), and not a private company. However, court decisions on discrimination will generally have to take into account what the Human Rights Act says.
This leaflet is published by the Legal Services Commission (LSC). It was written in association with the Commission for Racial Equality.
