Commons Women and Equalities Committee report on enforcement of equality law - Enforcing the Equality Act: the law and the role of the Equality and Human Rights Commission: Tenth Report of Session 2017-19. HC Paper No.1470 (Session 2017/19)

A Women and Equalities Committee report states the individual approach to enforcement of equality law is no longer fit for purpose. The report argues against relying on the individual approach and recommends that this must be replaced by a new approach which provides a sustainable deterrent and tackles institutional and systemic discrimination. The Committee's work in a range of areas has shown that individuals have difficulties enforcing their rights under the Equality Act 2010 and has questioned the effectiveness of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
