Combatting discrimination in the workplace

August 7, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Our experienced lawyers provide in-house training for functional business managers and also for central support functions, in a wide range of industries and organisations. We are happy to work with you to develop bespoke seminars on particular topics, and/or to deliver via webinar where the framework of the course allows.

In this particular session, our lawyers can deliver an interactive course, with group exercises based on a case study. While these workshops will be tailored to suit the business, a typical session will cover the legal steps and process concerning:

The framework of discrimination legislation

  • Who is protected? (group exercise)
  • All stages of employment, plus before and after
  • Types of discrimination – direct/indirect/disability/victimisation/harassment
  • Discrimination by perception and by association
  • Some decided cases re the above, plus group exercises

Corporate liability for harassment by third parties

Potential consequences of discrimination

  • Legal
  • Commercial
