Human Rights

Discrimination in the workplace is illegal. Employers are strongly advised to have a workplace discrimination policy prohibiting discrimination in all forms and providing examples of the prohibited behaviour. The policy should also set out a procedure which employees can follow if they feel they have been subjected to harassment or bullying, and it must clearly identify who is responsible for investigating complaints. This policy should exist in an employee handbook that is available to staff at all times.
