Morton Fraser – Half day Discrimination & Harassment training course
Monday 23 September 2019 – Edinburgh – 9am to 12.30pm
Employees are, quite rightly, increasingly willing to challenge inappropriate behaviour in the workplace. Line managers need to be equipped with the skills to bring to life equal opportunity and dignity at work policies in their day to day actions. Claims for discrimination are uncapped with six and even seven figure sums having been awarded by Employment Tribunals in the past few years. Employers who can show that they have taken “all reasonable steps” to avoid discrimination (including through appropriate training on equality issues) may be able to use this statutory defence against certain discrimination claims arising from the act of their employees.
In this half day training course designed for business owners, HR professionals, line managers, in-house lawyers and finance team members, Morton Fraser will cover:
- the protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010
- different types of discrimination
- recent cases and Employment Tribunal awards
- practical tips and red flags when recruiting, managing and dismissing
- the reasonable steps defence and how to ensure that you can argue it
- cascading training down through the workforce
This course has a very practical focus, drawing on Morton Fraser’s many years of experience of advising both employers and employees.
Cost of £249 plus VAT per delegate includes a copy of the slides and a handout with practical tips.
*10% reduction available for registered charities
