Your Rights

The Trust does not give advice on individual cases. However, we have produced a series of guides that outline in broad simple terms what your rights are under Jersey law and what you can do if you feel that you have been discriminated against in various contexts including employment, housing and education. They are not intended to be relied on as, nor are they a substitute for, legal advice which should be taken from a local firm of Advocates where necessary.
