Equality & Discrimination

It doesn’t matter which industry you operate in, every work setting has requirements on equality, diversity, discrimination, and rights.

The modern workplace is a diverse environment. As a result, the opportunity for discrimination is greater than ever before.

As you’re probably aware, the Equality Act 2010 protects individuals from discrimination. This piece of equal opportunities and anti-discrimination legislation protects people based a number of protected characteristics.

Unfortunately, despite this, harassment, bullying, and abuse still occur.

As an employer, it’s your job to encourage equality, stamp out discrimination and act decisively when it occurs.
