Discriminitation against adopted person

Hi. Is there a law which prevents discrimination against people because they are adopted. Thanks. Pete.

Hi Pete. 

 

 I am wondering how you are being discriminated against because the nature of the discrimination (job, provision of services, etc.) would also be relevant.  Perhaps you could text in some details and I can arrange to answer this off air.

 

Discrimination against adopted people is not one of the scheduled grounds under equality legislation but there may well be other ways of seeking the redress you appear to need.

 

I'm sorry I can't be more specific but the law is very precise about which type of discrimination is unlawful and to whom that discriminitation is being inflicted.
