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.
