Equality & Diversity in the Northern Ireland Workplace

These easy to access eLearning modules are tailored specifically to meet the needs of Northern Ireland organisations. They provide thorough equality and diversity training suitable for all employees.

Equality and diversity training in the workplace has become increasingly important in recent years.  Such training reduces the likelihood of harassment issues at work and strengthens considerably the employers’ defences to tribunal claims. It is also good for revenue generation too. A report by Deloitte in 2012 identified an 80% improvement in business performance when diversity and inclusion levels were high.

Advice from top employment lawyers is that equality and diversity training is completed regularly by all employees to ensure everyone is aware of their roles and responsibilities in keeping the workplace harassment free.

Three Year Equality & Diversity Training Plan

With this in mind, Legal-Island have developed a unique three year equality & diversity training plan designed specifically for employees in Northern Ireland.  This training plan, developed using real life cases from Industrial Tribunals, includes three training courses and three assessments across a three year period ensuring your staff are kept fully updated with new equality legislation. 

Topics covered include:

  • Diversity at Work
  • Types of discrimination
  • Protected characteristics of discrimination
  • Harassment in the workplace
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Stereotyping
  • Gossip at work
  • Unconscious bias
