Equality & Diversity Essentials

Our Equality and Diversity Essentials course provides individuals with a basic understanding of the importance of celebrating diversity and equality in the workplace. Individuals are protected by the Equality Act 2010 and the British Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). It is a legal requirement for every employer to ensure that their employees know what these are, so they can abide by the equality legislation and maintain an inclusive atmosphere. If a person feels your organisation or someone in your organisation has treated them unfairly, they can start a grievance procedure or take their case to the employment tribunal. It is important to make sure everyone in your organisation complies with equality law, and can determine how their actions or words may contribute to discrimination. This course boosts employers’ and employees’ understanding of the equality and diversity legislation that can be applied to the workplace, using examples to demonstrate the benefits that come from promoting equality and diversity in the workplace.
