The information contained on this site has been prepared and reviewed by experienced staff employed by the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland. Whilst considerable effort has been made to describe the law accurately, a website is limited in its ability to convey the complexities and variations in how the law may be applied and interpreted. The Commission, the authors or publishers do not accept liability for any loss which may arise from reliance on the information contained on this site.
We would also ask you to bear in mind the following points when using the site:
Links to other websites
Links to a number of other sites are made to provide the user with speed of reference. However, the Equality Commission cannot guarantee the accuracy of the contents of other websites to which links have been made.
Advisory material not legal advice
The material published on this website is for general information purposes and does not and is not intended to constitute legal or other professional advice. You should seek specific legal advice in relation to any particular matter.
Each case to be considered on its facts
Most importantly, each claim needs to be considered on its own facts and circumstances in the light of the information provided. Since no two claims are identical, a successful outcome in one case does not ensure a successful outcome in another.
