Commission comments on Women and Equalities Committee Report

Commenting on the new report from the Women and Equalities Committee, Caroline Waters, Deputy Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission said;

“This important report shines a light on an issue of increasing concern. We urge the Government to raise its game and work with greater vigour to tackle the problem or risk hundreds of thousands of women continuing to suffer discrimination at work every year.

“We are pleased the Committee has adopted our recommendations to improve access to justice calling for an extension on the three month time limit for tribunal claims, and tackling the barriers caused by high tribunal fees.

“We also support the call for stronger day one rights for parents such employers offering all jobs flexibly unless there is a reasonable justification not to.”
