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.

This one-day practical workshop focuses on the protected characteristics and how discrimination can occur in the workplace. It will provide delegates with the knowledge to recognise, avoid and manage complaints of discrimination in recruitment and working conditions.

What an amazing team. I recently found myself on suspension after a call of mine was monitored by the company I work for. I felt at the time that it was unfair and did acknowledge the mistake straight away.
