What are employers' responsibilities when it comes to harassment in the workplace?

According to a TUC survey 1 in 3 people experience bullying or harassment in the workplace, with women and those from the LGBTQ or BAME communities more likely to be victims than others. How many people does that equate to within your workforce?

In the last 18 months we've seen a tidal wave of change on the subject of harassment across all sectors, globally. Harassment has become a board focus with many boards realising it is their responsibility to drive cultural change.

This is a recording of a webinar is for individuals responsible for the safety and wellbeing of the people within their organisation.

This webinar recording was delivered by Kirsty Rogers, Partner at DWF Law, and Gemma McCall, Co-Founder of Culture Shift.

Gemma is MD of Culture Shift, a tech-for-good software development business, its first product Report + Support is a revolutionary online platform which allows the reporting and monitoring of bullying and harassment within organisations.

  • Your legal obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and Health & Safety at Work Act 1974
  • How you can minimise risk to reputation by protecting your people
  • Recommendations for complaints procedures, reporting and training
  • Barriers to reporting and how to encourage an open environment for reporting
