Equality & Diversity
This is an area that is growing day by day and affects all businesses, whether big or small. It's about ensuring that everyone is treated equally regardless of their sex, marital status, race, sexual orientation, religion or belief, disability or age.
There are media reports every day where £1000's are awarded in compensation by tribunals to those who have fallen foul of the law. Did you know that placing an advert for an employee which is deemed discriminatory could see you the wrong side of a claim? You don't even have to be an employee to bring such a claim!
It's also about ensuring that everyone in the workplace, or trying to find work gets equal chances and opportunities. That they are rewarded equally or are not overlooked for promotion, training or a pay rise, for example, due to perceived ideas or prejudice.
