Employment Law

Discrimination and whistleblowing

Non-compliance with employment law regulations can put you or your business at serious risk. As an employer, you need to make sure that all business conduct is in accordance with the law and this includes the way you manage your staff. 

What is discrimination?

Businesses must act in compliance with the Equality Act 2010. The act protects individuals from discrimination both in the workplace and in society. Discrimination is commonly defined as the unfair treatment of someone based on their race, age, gender, sexuality, religion, disability, pregnancy or gender reassignment. Employers need to ensure that their business is free from discrimination as non-compliance can potentially lead to lawsuits. Lance Mason can explain the inner workings of the Equality Act 2010 and help implement procedures to prevent discrimination taking place in the workplace.

What is whistleblowing?

Whistleblowing is a worker drawing the attention of management to suspected wrongdoing. The official term is ‘making a disclosure in the public interest’. . Examples of whistleblowing include the disclosure of bribery and corruption or the disclosure of improper practices of any member of staff.
