Research released today has revealed MPs, Peers, volunteers and staff are woefully unprotected if they are sexually harassed in Parliament. The report by the Fawcett Society and Hogan Lovells found glaring gaps in equality law covering these groups. MPs and Peers are exempt from Part 5 of the Equality Act (2010), which includes provisions on sexual harassment in the workplace that apply to employees. Volunteers are left completely unprotected and staff who are sexually harassed by a third party are also not covered.
