What the Petitions Committee is doing

Petition Create an Official Racial Offenders Register/Scheme

Similar to Sarahs Law and Clares Law, we are asking the Government to create a register for racial offenders so organisations can find out if potential employees have a history of racial related offences before they are recruited into diverse organisations.

More details

As part of the drive to further protect citizens and have zero tolerance to all forms of prejudice and discrimination in the workplace, this register would allow employees to know if any staff have a history of race-related offences to determine if they could cause further prejudice and discrimination within the workplace and whether they would be best fit for roles within diverse working environments.
