Our half day training course will help you understand the law and practice around equal opportunities and discrimination issues.
This session is aimed at anyone with responsibility for dealing with employee matters in the workplace. Whether you are a manager, business owner or HR professional, we will ensure that we bring you up to date on the law in this area. We will give you a better understanding of the ways in which unlawful discrimination can arise, and give you confidence in dealing with any equal opportunities issues that may arise in your organisation.
The course will be delivered by our team of experienced employment lawyers, and will be run in an interactive round table format. The course will involve a variety of activities, including case studies and some role-play. Delegate numbers are strictly limited to ensure that everyone has the opportunity ask questions, share experiences and gain maximum benefit from the event.
The course will cover all the key points, including:
- What are the protected characteristics?
- Direct discrimination
- Indirect discrimination
- Dealing with allegations of discrimination
- Discrimination claims
- Equal opportunities policies – what should they say?
- Implementing policies in practice
- Discrimination in recruitment
- Employer liability for acts of discrimination and the potential defences
- Individual liability
- How to avoid ending up in an Employment Tribunal
(Please note that Equal Pay issues will be outside the scope of this course.)
