Equality and Human Rights Commission
We are Britain’s independent equality and human rights regulator. We are a United Nations accredited ‘A status’ National Human Rights Institution (NHRI).
Our role is to make the country a fairer place by enforcing and upholding the laws that safeguard everyone’s right to fairness, dignity and respect.
We enforce the Equality Act 2010, which makes it unlawful to discriminate against or harass individuals based on the nine protected characteristics.
Our work is shaped by a commitment to excellence in evidence and expertise.
We are the first port of call for policy makers, public sector bodies and businesses who require authoritative guidance on equality and human rights law.
