Following reports of incidents of racism at Yorkshire County Cricket Club (YCCC), in our role as enforcer of the Equality Act, we have written to YCCC asking for further information.
“As Britain’s equality regulator, we are deeply concerned about the incidents of racism at Yorkshire County Cricket Club. We have written to YCCC to ask for more information, including a full copy of their investigation report, to determine if there has been a breach of the law. We will take action if so. All employers have a duty to protect their employees from bullying and harassment. We met the English Cricket Board in April to discuss how this can be achieved in the sport.” – Marcial Boo, Chief Executive of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
