About this course

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.  While discrimination laws differ between jurisdictions, the principles remain similar.

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 an understanding of what discrimination looks like in the workplace and recognising what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour.
