Religion or Belief in the Workplace Inquiry (EHRC)
MWNUK responded to The Equality and Human Rights Commission's Call for Evidence on how the religion or belief of individuals and organisations may have affected their experiences in the workplace or when accessing services. MWNUK also commented on the effectiveness of the current legislation- the Equality Act 2010.
MWNUK highlighted that the increasing discrimination due to racism and Islamophobia experienced by Muslims and especially Muslim women is under documented and under reported. MWNUK also raised concerns that there exists a difference between what the legislation says and the perceived meaning or reported experience of what religious discrimination is defined as. It remained clear that much work still needs to be done to raise awareness of current laws and how everyone can go about accessing their protection.
