Inquiry status: open

The deadline for written submissions was Friday 5 October 2018. If you wish to submit evidence please contact Committee staff.

Scope of the inquiry

The Committee has already made recommendations to improve the enforcement of the Equality Act in specific areas. It now wants to know what more needs to be done to achieve widespread compliance with the Equality Act 2010 for all those with rights under it, including:

  • the processes by which individual cases can be brought under the Equality Act, including the barriers that may prevent claimants from enforcing their rights
  • the role of the EHRC as the enforcement body, including the effectiveness of its duties, powers and policies
  • whether there are other models of enforcement that could achieve more widespread compliance with the rights set out in the Equality Act 2010.
