The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has launched a call for evidence from individuals and organisations about how religion and belief, or lack of it, have affected their experiences in the workplace and in their use of services and facilities in everyday life. It wants information on both positive and negative experiences since 2010, namely the issues faced and solutions found.

The EHRC will use the information provided as part of a three-year programme to strengthen understanding of religion or belief in public life, improve knowledge of what happens in practice, and to ensure that laws intended to protect everyone's right to be treated with fairness, dignity and respect are effective. The call for evidence will remain open for responses until 14 October 2014 and the EHRC's findings are due to be made available in early 2015.
