Everyone should be treated with dignity and respect at work.

Unfortunately, from time to time this doesn’t happen – and subjecting someone to harassment or victimisation are both good examples of this type of failure.

The Equality Act 2010 - the most significant piece of equality law for many years – makes both harassment and victimisation illegal.

This course sets out to explain in simple terms the different forms of harassment, its harmful consequences, how it can be avoided and how to deal with it. Simulations and case studies based on the imaginary town of Equalityville are used to help the learner recognise harassment within a work context.

The circumstances that constitute victimisation are also explained and demonstrated.

The target audience for this course is: All members of an organisation requiring a base level understanding of the subject and its practical application

On completion of this course the learner will be able to identify harassment in the workplace, and understand the links to equal opportunities. He or she will understand, and be committed to, the fact that harassment is unacceptable in today’s workplace.

This means that, not only will the learner avoid problems resulting from contravening the law, but, where he or she has management responsibility, they will also be perceived as open, enlightened and contemporary in their attitudes.
