Despite the increase in remote working during the Covid-19 pandemic, recent reports suggest that bullying and harassment remain prevalent issues in the workplace. Although employees may be spending less time in the physical workspaces, research suggests that bullying and harassment, and in particular, sexual harassment, have taken on new forms in the virtual workplace, and that there has been an increase in bullying and harassment online. In order to avoid potential bullying and harassment in the workplace, employers must ensure that Equality and Diversity training is delivered on a regular basis and that they have a fit-for-purpose Equal Opportunities policy in place. Each organisation needs to demonstrate that it has created a non-discriminatory organisational culture that is “lived and breathed” by everyone. During this webinar, our HR and Employment experts will outline the principles of protecting Equality and Diversity in the workplace, how to avoid harassment claims, and the potential consequences if employers fail to take steps to do so.
