Staff Equality (Online Course)
This course is part of the ALL STAFF STATUTORY Taining
A short video briefing provided by Nick Abbot, a practicing lawyer who specialises in employment law. The focus of this short training package is the Equality Act 2010 and its protection of staff from discrimination, victimisation and harassment.
The Equality Act 2010 covers all aspects of the employment relationship. It applies to anyone employed by the University, but also those involved in the recruitment process, those who spend time working abroad and also agency workers. In this short training package, a fictional scenario based on the facts of real cases is used to illustrate the application of the Equality Act and the University's Dignity Policy in relation to the harassment of a member of staff with a protected characteristic is also considered.
Additionally, Nick also explains the other types of discrimination and harassment in relation to the nine protected characteristics and the responsibilities that an employer has regarding its employees. He also explains that while an employer can be liable for the discriminatory actions of its employees through the concept of vicarious liability, the employees themselves can also be held individually responsible under the Act.
