Discrimination in the workplace

The 2010 Equality Act is the most significant piece of equality legislation for many years. It makes it easier for employers to understand their responsibilities by simplifying and streamlining the law. It also sets a new standard for those who provide public services to treat everyone with dignity and respect.

Understanding discrimination within the workplace is an essential element for any employer, along with effective policies and procedures.

Who the course is for

This course is suitable HR and personnel professionals, business owners, managers at all levels and anyone interested in understanding the Equality Act and how it affects the organisation.

After a very distressing time in my employment caused by bullying and discrimination I finally found Castle Associates. I was very impressed by the speed and service provided by Castle Associates. I would strongly recommend this company and know from my own experience they are genuine.

From the moment I met Laura from Castle Associates I felt at ease and confident that she would ensure that I would be well represented. Until that point the whole situation felt very one sided, with me feeling as if I would never get the chance to properly present my side of the argument.
