Harassment and Bias: Avoiding claims

Harassment and Bias: Avoiding Claims


The aim of this training session is to raise awareness of harassment in the workplace and consider the legal claims that employers may face if they fail to prevent or adequately address harassment when it occurs. We will look at a relevant case study as a practical example of how harassment can arise and guide employers through addressing formal complaints via the grievance and disciplinary process and managing relationships moving forward. In addition to covering harassment which falls under the Equality Act 2010, we will also consider general bullying and harassment in the workplace and how employers can manage personal relationships at work. We will also consider employer’s liability for misconduct outside of work and how to deal with this. Finally, we will look at unconscious bias and the importance of ensuring key decisions, such as promotions, are made on the basis of merit only.
