The Women and Equalities Committee opened an inquiry on 30 July 2018 to find out how to achieve widespread compliance with the Equality Act 2010.
The deadline for submissions is 5 October 2018.
The Committee calls for evidence on:
- How easy it is for people to understand and enforce their rights under the Equality Act
- How well enforcement action under the Equality Act works as a mechanism for achieving widescale change
- How effective and accessible tribunals and other legal means of redress under the Equality Act are, and what changes would improve those processes
- How effective current remedies for findings of discrimination are in achieving change, and what alternative or additional penalties should be available;
- The effectiveness of the Equality and Human Rights Commission as an enforcement body
Maria Miller MP said:
This inquiry will provide the opportunity for a more systematic review of the causes [of non-enforcement] and identify possible solutions.
