Course Overview

Managing staff is complex, time consuming and potentially legally explosive if not done correctly. As we see in the media regularly, almost every second person has experienced some form of bullying, harassment or discrimination in the workplace.

Every employer has a duty of care to provide all employees with a safe place to work, without fear of being bullied or harassed. Implementing a zero tolerance within the workplace culture is a key step in doing this. It is important to provide the tools and strategies for those in positions of management or human resources to recognise this behaviour and to be confident in handling it.

This half-day training course will cover best practice operating principles to minimise risk in your workplace with harassment, discrimination and bullying. The course will demonstrate how you can set boundaries in the workplace with clear and precise policies and procedures, and it will work through practical case studies that will give you the confidence to handle any disputes that arise.

This comprehensive course will cover:

  • The difference between bullying, harassment and discrimination

  • Examples and case studies detailing impact on the business

  • Who is liable when things happen and steps you can take to minimise damage to all parties

  • The role of management and steps to take to minimise exposure

  • Steps to take when a complaint is made

  • Grievance procedures

  • Performance management in this scenario

  • How to deal with difficult situations

  • Legislation and case studies that show precedent

Join your peers and upskill on these essential HR skills today. Spend the money on training the team to minimise this behaviour, rather than having to pay the price later with an unfair dismissal claim.
