The UK's Equality and Human Rights Commission

By: Louise Smith, barrister - Updated: 3 Jan 2017 | comments*Discuss
 
Human Rights Equality Uk Commission

The UK’s Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) was created by the Equality Act 2006 and came into being in April 2006. The EHRC replaced three separate organisations: the Commission for Racial Equality, the Disability Rights Commission and the Equal Opportunities Commission. From 1 October 2007 the EHRC took over the work previously carried out by those three organisations.

The EHRC is a “Non Departmental Public Body” and reports to the Government Equalities Office, the UK government department with responsibility for equality, which also opened in October 2007.

Difficulties Faced by the Equality and Human Rights Commission

The EHRC has not had an easy start in life and has been at the centre of a number of controversies. It has seen several high-level resignations and concerns have been voiced over payments made to consultants who had previously been employees of one of the organisations which it replaced. It is now believed that the EHRC was not fully ready to take over the work of the three previous commissions when it opened on 1st October 2007.

The Purpose of the Equality and Human Rights Commission

The purpose of the EHRC is to bring responsibility for all different types of discrimination under one roof. It was felt that this would make it easier for individuals, businesses and other organisations to get information, advice and help about their rights and responsibilities under human rights and equality law. As well as helping people protect themselves against discrimination or breaches of their human rights the EHRC also works to actively promote equality. The EHRC has responsibility for discrimination or inequality relating to the following areas:
  • Age;
  • Disability;
  • Gender, sexual orientation or gender reassignment;
  • Race; and
  • Religion and belief.
It is quite likely that an individual may face discrimination which falls under more than one category. By having a single organisation with responsibility and expertise in all types of discrimination and inequality, situations involving more than one type of discrimination should be handled more efficiently than under the previous regime.

What Can the Equality and Human Rights Commission do to Help?

The EHRC can help promote equality and protect human rights in a number of ways. Three of the EHRC’s main functions are described below.

Firstly, the EHRC can provide information to individuals so that they know what their rights are. The EHRC also provides information to organisations such as businesses, schools and public authorities to ensure that they know about their responsibilities under equality law. For example, an employer may contact the EHRC to get information so that he can ensure that he is treating his employees fairly and in accordance with the law.

Secondly, if an individual’s rights have been breached, the EHRC may be able to provide specific legal advice and even take cases to court – particularly if they feel that the case may involve a new or untested area of law. In most cases it is likely that the EHRC may not be able to provide specific legal advice. However, help from the EHRC is also available from their website or via their helpline. In addition, the EHRC provides funding to other organisations which can provide help and advice in relation to discrimination, human rights and equality.

Thirdly, the EHRC aims to influence government policy on equality and discrimination, and to help shape new equality laws. The EHRC intends to ensure that equality and human rights remain a priority for the government. The EHRC will monitor the government’s behaviour to ensure that it lives up to its promise to create a fair and equal society.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission as Legal Enforcer

As well as being able to help individuals with equality cases, the EHRC also has powers to force organisations to fulfil their equality responsibilities. If the EHRC suspects that an organisation or public authority is not fulfilling its equality functions it may carry out an inquiry or investigation.

The EHRC can only help with a human rights legal case if it involves equality issues. However, it may be able to hold an inquiry or bring judicial review proceedings if there has been a breach of the requirements set out in the Human Rights Act. The EHRC can also get involved with pre-existent court proceedings, as a third party, to ensure that human rights laws are being observed.

NyssaSue - Your Question:
My line manager is deliberately victimising me and discriminating against me to try and force me to resign because I've been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. I need help to make him stop.

Our Response:
You should talk to your employer first to try and sort out the problem, be sure to mention the Equality Act etc. If you don't manage to sort things out in this way, then report it to Acas or trade union rep (if you have one), with a view to taking a claim to an employment tribunal for discrimination.

Need some advice please,my ex had a meeting with social about her boy who's been playing up at school & home police was involved as well I was invited to it as I have two children with her,but it wasn't my children that the meeting was about.when she came out the meeting she had all the paper work about what happened & stuff in the meeting but she also had my information which was my criminal record a list of my effences & convictions which I done way before I meet her when I was a youth. Surely that's a breach of data protection & my human rights I don't think it can be passed to a third party like that without my promission. Now she's using it as a weapon against me, do any one know where I stand in this situation & have a got a legal case to sue

I am disabled person since 1994, with many occurrences of my underlying condition since 2006. I was severely abused by my former employer, who used all dirty tricks over period of 3 years against my fragile health to unfairly dismiss me in a chain of coordinated actions, primarily attacking my health (protected attributes). They even organised a conspiracy involving many corrupted HR managers and corrupted and evil health official from their own health services, who despite medical evidence changed my DDA likely into DDA unlikely. They deliberately made me ill in April/May 2011, then again in May 2012 and fundamentally changed my health to worse in February 2013. Employer never offered counseling or similar help although I requested it. They did not allow me a Grievance Procedure or to represent myself in my claim againsttermination of employment. Despite being off-sick for many long periods in the last two years of employment they did not follow their company procedures about ill health retirement assessment. My case of constructive dismissal linked to health discrimination was a farce where employer, representatives and Judge panel ignored Orders for expert report about my health, ignored all medical documents from many doctors (and in general excluded all my employment and health related documents and used only defendant's documentation), forced me to attend the hearing during severe episode of panic attacks and other psychological problems which made me unable to both prepare and represent myself (I was signed off sick months before, during, and after the hearing, now continuously ill more than 15 months). Tribunal ignored all my applications and official complaints (many of them submitted several times). All other Tribunal Services ignored all my communication regarding my illness and disability, failing to investigate the original corruption of the Main Hearing process, in fact causing more personal injuries with each of their responses. The Police also did not take any action, although I chased them several times and escalated to the next level. DWP is also asked protect my health and human rights, to launch an investigation in many employment/judicial/health/disability/human rights irregularities and crimes. Local MP was also extremely useless, despite 5-6 communications sent to him. Iinsisted on Human Rights Lawyer at least 4-5 times, at different stages since 2013, all of them being ignored (by employer, Watford Employment Tribunal, Police, DWP etc. Please help. Once I was a top expert, with very high salary for nearly 20 years, now I am forced to claim Income based ESA (and it appears that is a subject to six weeks delays and manipulations). Looks like that disabled people who do not have obvious and visible physical disability are discriminated, assumed not ill rather than assessed and helped. My human rights were definitively ignored for the past 22 years, despite many medical reports and countless letters demanding help and jus

Dear Commission, My son lives in a house flat and has done for 14 years without problem.Three months ago the council moved in a girl from Ghana in the upstairs flat.At first things were ok, he even took steps upstairs and screwdriver to help her put her curtains up and everything was fine.However she started bringing her friends home late at night or in the early hours and they would bang around, putting music on, loud tv, laughing and shouting; so that it was impossible to sleep.He tried speaking to her, but she just laughed at him.He suffers with chronic anxiety and her and her friends ganged together after he lost his temper (no violence) and phoned the police, saying he threatened her and that she was afraid.This went on again, and then her friends started to threaten him, saying they were going to kill him and his dog and was going to get the yardies to see to him proper.The upshot of all this is that he has been charged with racial harassment and ordinary harassment, none of which he is guilty of, it is the other way around.He phoned the police 3 times on 999 and myself as well, but they have taken her part, it seems that racist opinion only works if it is against black people, but they have prejudice to him, calling him white trash, white scum.I think they want him out of his flat so that more of her friends can move in.All the police say is that he will have his day in court, but that is too late because now he has been charged, and nothing against her.Can anyone advise me or help me in this.

Dear HRC, There was incident where someone was detained under s2mha 1983 based on the lies of a police officer and drug dealers and takers, whom had a relative as social worker assistant manager they all ganged up. This was to protect a fraudsters claiming benefits claiming benefit , the council forced monies out of this person from income support. When they questioned it they were banged up and drugged up to shut them up. Now this person has suffered refused reassessment like everyone else, no right to appeal and now the manager is trying to get the person to sign a ESA 50 she completed when the person is of poor sight, using that as an excuse to have them detained again. The person came to me for advice, as to what to do Frightened of being locked up in a hospital and the losing their home. The woman at dwp was implying the house was too big, a home would be good, but it is surely a persons right to live in familiar surroundings. The person only now had dla being paid until that is stopped in the same way.we call ourselves a civilised society and people are bullied and treated in this way to cover up council and police. A police woman stated that the person was detained before under the act in Wales but when we found out years later this turned out to be a lie everyone covers this up. No apology , no compensation, just no income and debts.

Dear Human Rights Commission, Some of the faces on thiswebpage are implicit in sexual misconduct and human rights violations which was thought to have died with Adolf Hitler. Genocidal eugenics policies, rape, pedophilia and wanton government torture are now the cart Blanche of our ironic parliamentary democracy.As I attempt to take legal action they threaten to commit terrorism, rape, hospital drug, disable, and other types of Hitler crimes.They say that if I do not become homosexual they will meet out the measure of nazi Britannica by utilizing the NHS to carry out hate crime on me for choosing my own woman and job. They deem such basics of life has threatening world stability has though ones' career could out tax the toff.I am going to take the government to court for 65 million pounds and a written apology. They need to know that the British voters are not to be lusted over with carnal fantasy.The prime minister has declared his love and affection to me.and spread carnal rumors.I just need to be left alone from them who are very obsessed and viewing me in a sexual way.As a result of their degrading hidden cameras they are fantasying about me when I use the toilet and shower, they have evendeclared me insane and continue to pervert the cause of justice. They promote the primitive mind, of thoseimpressed by celebrity into their henchmen by allowing them the perks of high class esteem.They have me given mind bending drugs that I am always worrying about and they want me to be sex trafficked around the government like a primitive beast.David Cameron and his gang do not think I am human and, like Hitler, has spread propagandaby people who do not talk to me, to know me, but watch me from the shadows. There is nothing I would love more than to see them hang for eleven years of psychological torture, but has this is no longer law, one cannot help but damn this kinky gang of buggers and plotters.We deserve law again and I need to sue the gay revolutionaries so I can choose my own woman and live in peace.They have declared war on the people and isolated truth with kinky lies, a reign of man queens attempt to usurp Regina and supplant the crown with the kinky camera of digital Sodom.

I have recently been convicted for a crime. And have been to crown Court and received 180 hours unpayed work and a fine. My problem is that the essex probation service have added on what I believe to be more punishment. By going out of their way to publicly humiliat myself. And others byway of unnecessarily sing writing hi vis waste coats at cost to eps. This was not part of the crown Court punishment. I have provided hi vis and steel toe cap boots as requested. Yet have been forced to wear the sing written one I feel humiliated as do others and also feel a lot of stress because if I do not wear eps sing written community pay back waste. Coates I risk being put in prison this is causing myself and others undue stress and anxiety we feel as if we are being publicly humiliated and tortured. Please. Help. Thanks ken aiello

Is it lawful for my employer to proceed with disciplinary action against me regarding my complaint of discrimination on the ground of race and sex to the tribunal.My employer alleged my complaint part of which were never investigated was made in bad faith and suspended me 8months after complaining to the tribunal.The tribunal has now fully heard my complaint and am awaiting a decision.In the meantime I believe my employer is determined to dismiss me before tribunal outcome is released.i don't know how much longer before I get an outcome and eager to know if there is any way I can be protected.My complaint were genuinely made and not in bad faith as alleged.i went to the tribunal where my employer failed me justice on my discrimination complaint Thanks Bola Agbo

Judicial Corruption in English Courts. A number of the judges are not able to act on their own anymore as Judicial Assistants and Case Lawyers are now deciding fate of people.

Because I am WET - White, English, Transsexual and not EFT - Ethnic, Freeloading, Terrorist - this Equlaity and HUMAN RIGHTS commission will not lift a finger to help me and the Article, 6,8,12,13 and 14 discrimination of my HUMAN RIGHTS that I have had to endure. As the Equality and HUMAN RIGHTS comission is directed and governed by black, homosexual andlesbian staff who are hostile to transsexuals I have had to report them to the European Court of HUMAN RIGHTS as the ECHR does understand that WETs - White, English, Transsexuals do have HUMAN RIGHTS even if the homosexual and lesbian staff of the Equality and Human Rights Commission think otherwise and prefer to concentrate on pushing the rights fo homosexuals and ethnics.
