Steve McCabe MP encourages local faith groups to have their say on religion in the workplace

Steve McCabe MP, Birmingham Selly Oak, is encouraging local faith groups to have their say on the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s review into the impact of religion in the workplace.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has launched a major call for evidence from individuals and religious organisations about the impact of religion in the workplace. As part of its mandate from Parliament, the Commission will look at the adequacy of the current legal framework for protecting rights to religion and belief. The aim of the review is to ensure that people’s right to be treated with fairness and respect is made a reality for employees, service users, employers and service providers.

 

The Commission wants to gather as much information as possible from faith groups and hear about the issues people face and how they find solutions. The Commission will assess how employers and service providers are taking religion into account and the impact this has on individuals. The evidence gathered will be used to look at how effective the current legislation to protect religion is proving in practice and the findings will be published in Spring 2015.

 

Steve McCabe MP said:

 

“It’s really important that faith groups feel a part of discussions about improving how people with religious beliefs are treated in the workplace. My constituency is made up of a diverse range of people who come from various religious backgrounds which is why I am encouraging local faith groups to participate in this national call for evidence and have their say.”
