Overview

In these times where organisations are operating with workforces that have diverse backgrounds and attributes, it is important to understand what is considered discrimination, harassment and bullying in the workplace. Given that these workplace issues can have serious consequences for employers as well as employees, it is essential that employers know their legal obligations. However, the laws relevant to workplace bullying, discrimination and harassment are complex and can be difficult for employers to understand.

This half-day course will explain what is workplace discrimination, harassment and bullying. It will outline the legal framework, discuss the responsibilities of employers and employees including ‘vicarious liability’ and provide an update on any recent changes to legislation.

The presenters will provide examples and case studies to help employers better understand their legal obligations as well as discussing practical measures to prevent discrimination, harassment and bullying in the workplace, including tips for dealing with complaints and workplace investigations.

Who should attend

All staff members, however the course is particularly aimed at staff in supervisory and managerial positions.
