The Women and Equalities Committee has launched a new inquiry into the enforcement of the Equality Act 2010. It will collect evidence on the enforcement of the Act and the effectiveness of the Equality and Human Rights Commission in its enforcement. It is seeking evidence on how easy it is for the public to understand and enforce their statutory rights, on the effectiveness and accessibility of tribunals and other enforcement mechanisms, and on the effectiveness of remedies and penalties in discrimination cases.

The deadline for submissions is 5 October 2018.
