As an employer, you have a legal duty of care towards your employees and this includes creating and maintaining a safe and healthy working environment.
Not only does this obligation include the physical environment, but the mental environment as well.
With the increased emphasis on mental well-being and the increase in GPs willing to sign patients off with anxiety, stress or depression, there is a far greater need for employers to pro actively manage their working environment and that includes protecting employees from bullying, harassment, victimisation and discrimination.
If an employee decides to take you to an employment tribunal, they will be encouraged to add a claim for discrimination wherever they can as unlike with other claims, the awards are unlimited.
In this webinar we will be looking at your obligations, essential policies, practical procedures and tools for mitigating the risks associated with bullying, harassment and discrimination.
