Discrimination and the law

What an employer can do to prevent discrimination

You can help prevent discrimination in the workplace by steps including:

  • having an up-to-date equality policy
  • providing regular anti-discrimination training to staff
  • making it clear how staff can complain if discrimination happens
  • regular one-to-one catch-ups between employees and their line managers, to help build positive working relationships 

This can help:

  • make sure your workplace treats employees fairly
  • make it less likely you'll be held responsible for discrimination carried out by an employee
