Providing equality of treatment and opportunity is an important obligation placed on all employers. A workplace culture that promotes equality and diversity can also benefit employee retention, attract new talent, increase productivity and enhance your business reputation.
The Birketts employment law team will take you through the following topics to ensure your organisation complies with its duties under the Equality Act 2010 and to avoid discrimination claims arising (and to give yourself the best defence when they do):
-the active steps an employer can take to prevent discrimination, promote equality and improve diversity;
-how to reduce the risk of disputes and potential claims arising in the workplace;
-why it is important to promote staff training, set clear standards for expected behaviour and encourage reporting of incidents which breach those standards.
