What rights do I have?

We are all born with human rights and, although they can sometimes be limited or restricted, your rights cannot be taken away from you. The Human Rights Act contains 16 rights. Here you can find out about 3 key rights.

Absolute Rights

Absolute rights can never be restricted, limited or interfered with. There is no excuse for this happening. If a decision or situation is affecting one of your absolute rights then this is not lawful. Action needs to take place straight away so that this situation does not continue. Absolute rights include


Non-Absolute Rights

Non-absolute rights can be limited or restricted in some situations. But this can only happen if a 3 stage test is passed. The decision must be, Lawful, Legitimate and Proportionate.
