Investigation opened into the Labour Party following complaints about antisemitism

Equality and Human Rights Commission

1 min read Member content

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is today launching a formal investigation to determine whether The Labour Party has unlawfully discriminated against, harassed or victimised people because they are Jewish. The EHRC is pleased that The Labour Party has committed to co-operate fully with its investigation.

The EHRC contacted Labour after receiving a number of complaints about allegations of antisemitism in the Party. The EHRC has carefully considered the response it has received from the Party and has now opened a formal investigation under section 20 of the Equality Act 2006 to further examine the concerns. The investigation will seek to determine:

  • whether unlawful acts have been committed by the Party and/or its employees and/or its agents;
  • whether the Party has responded to complaints of unlawful acts in a lawful, efficient and effective manner.

The full terms of reference are available on the EHRC’s website.

Once the EHRC has concluded its investigation, it will publish a report of its findings which may include recommendations.
