Equality in Employment

Equality in Employment

Equality in Employment and what it means for your Business

Discrimination can take a number of forms. These include direct discrimination, indirect discrimination, harassment and victimisation.

Equality in Employment and the law of discrimination is complex and we are happy to advise on how to protect your business from claims of discrimination.

Prohibited grounds of discrimination include, but are not limited to;  Sex, Sexual Orientation, Race, Age and Disability.

When drafting initial employee documentation, it is important to include a policy demonstrating a commitment to equality in employment.

This should also prohibit discrimination and set out clearly how any allegations of discrimination will be dealt with.

Producing policies of this nature has many benefits.

Firstly, it demonstrates an anti-discrimination culture.

Secondly it will assist managers and other employees to deal effectively with allegations.

Thirdly, it may assist to persuade an Employment Tribunal that the business does not tolerate discriminatory behaviour and believes in equality in employment.

If your business needs advice in respect of a discrimination matter, please do not hesitate to contact your nearest Ringrose Law Office. Contact Boston, Sleaford, Grantham, Newark or Lincoln and ask for a member of the Employment Law Team.
