The Equal Opportunity Act 2000 protects and entrenches everyone’s legal right to equality and fair treatment.  The Act makes it unlawful to discriminate against people in certain areas/categories of public life and on seven status grounds, and by victimisation and offensive behaviour. This means that if any person believes he/she has been discriminated against in these ways, a complaint can be lodged with the Commission.

Discrimination by Status Ground
