As an employer, you have a legal obligation to ensure that your staff fully understand their responsibilities for equality, diversity and preventing discrimination.
The Equality Act became law in the UK in 2010, replacing previous legislation with a more modern approach to combatting unfair disadvantages and discrimination. When it comes to the workplace, the Act makes it clear for both employers and employees what their rights and responsibilities are in following the law and creating a diverse and harmonious work environment.
As an employer, you have a legal 'duty of care' for all members of staff, ensuring that all reasonable actions are taken to put an end to bullying and harassment. Both employers and employees can be answerable and liable for misdemeanours if they breach the Equality Act.
We’ve made it easy for you to ensure all of your employees are on track with our new EssentialsPlus Equality and Diversity elearning modules.
