Discrimination Course

(New Zealand)

Are your employees aware of the types of behaviour that are considered discriminatory? Discrimination occurs when an employer takes adverse action against an employee or prospective employee because of a number of attributes including race, gender, age or religion.  Breaches can incur heavy costs for organisations, including reputational damage, compensation orders, and high staff turnover.

Safetrac’s ‘Discrimination’ course provides you and your employees with a general understanding of how anti-discrimination provisions of the Human Rights Act 1993 and the Employment Relations Act 2000 operate within the workplace.
