Training helps build workplace understanding and tolerance. The Equality Act 2010 allows employers to defend employment tribunal claims if they can show that they took “all reasonable steps” to prevent workplace discrimination and harassment.

From October 2024, employers will be under a new duty to take steps to prevent sexual harassment of their staff, and employment tribunals will be able to increase compensation by up to 25% if there has been a failure to do so.

Effective policies and up to date, regular training are key components in being able to comply with an employer's legal duties. We can help you in a number of ways:

Pre-recorded Training

Pre-recorded Training Pre-recorded training is available to purchase at a fixed price of £750 ex VAT and can be used with as many staff as you need as many times as required before the annual renewal date. This can be useful where it is difficult to find a suitable time to have staff come together at the same time for training, or for staff who have missed regular training dates.

Equality and Diversity New

Our essential Equality and Diversity Training is available now. To help employers demonstrate compliance with their legal duties, this 90 minutes recorded session covers:

  • An understanding of what is protected by discrimination laws in Scotland, England and Wales
  • The scope and breadth of the “protected characteristics” of age, disability, gender re-assignment, marriage and civil partnership, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation
  • Examples from recent employment tribunal cases
  • The types of actions that would be regarded as workplace harassment and the implications for employers and employees, such as the potential for personal liability of employees and the scope of the protection at social events connected with work.

This training package comes with questions to consolidate learning.

Training materials should be refreshed on an annual basis.

Follow-up Zoom Sessions

Zoom It can be beneficial for businesses to add an active training session after staff have undertaken the recorded training, to enhance training further. A 60 minute live Q&A session via Zoom can be arranged for up to 20 delegates. The fixed cost for this is £500 ex VAT.

Additional Resources

In addition to our pre-recorded training material, bespoke recorded training materials can be prepared, as well as scripted materials for HR professionals to deliver training or scripted scenarios for inclusion in bespoke training videos.

Live Training

Popular training has included a one-hour session on avoiding workplace harassment, or a two-hour introduction to Equality & Diversity (similar in content to the pre-recorded training).

The recommended group size is 20 staff. The one-hour session can be delivered on-site to 4 groups a day, and the 2-hour session to two groups per day. Contact us for more details.

One-to one or small group tailored sessions are ideal for those who need a refresher or who find themselves with additional duties following a promotion.

Costs for bespoke training sessions are dependent on the subject matter, duration and mode of delivery.
