The modern workplace is highly diverse. With cultural trends and world events constantly changing, it is essential for organisations to make sure their people understand the risks and issues associated with equality and discrimination at work.

Even with a sound policy on equality and discrimination, you can still be at risk of claims based on what your employees say and do to each other.

By training your people you might be able to divert liability onto the individual if a claim goes to tribunal.

A plain-speaking, practical course using real-life examples of cases and workplace blunders to inform your employees of the equality and discrimination challenges in today’s diverse workplace.

This course is CPD certified.
