The modern workplace is highly diverse. With cultural trends and world events constantly changing, it is essential for organisations and managers to keep on top of the latest best practice and legal pitfalls of harassment and discrimination at work.

Did you know that someone doesn’t even have to be working for you to raise a discrimination claim against your organisation?

Even with a sound policy on equality and discrimination, you can still be at risk of claims based on what your managers and employees say and do to each other. This course is a key element to giving you a legal defence against these claims.

A plain-speaking, practical course using real-life examples of cases and workplace blunders that will help you manage equality and discrimination challenges in today’s diverse workplace.

This course is CPD certified.
