The seminar set out the legal definition of harassment at work:

  • What is unwanted conduct?
  • What does ‘has the purpose or effect’ mean
  • What is meant by ‘violating dignity’ or ‘creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment’
  • Employer’s responsibility for acts committed by employees or third parties

and also the practical steps that employers can take to reduce their risk

  • Understanding the ‘reasonable steps’ defence
  • The role of policies and procedures
  • The importance of training staff

An important part of any ‘reasonable steps’ defence is training.  Scrase Employment Solicitor’s Equality Awareness training can be provided ‘in-house’.  It provides a topical, lively and informative overview of equality in the workplace, including harassment at work.  To find out more, click here.
