Consultation on caste discrimination

Close date: 18 July 2017

The Government consults on how the law can prohibit caste discrimination. It seeks views on whether or not it should amend the Equality Act 2010 to include "caste" in the definition of "race" to provide victims with statutory protection against this form of discrimination, or allow the law in this area to develop through the courts via case-law.
