The workshop is designed to be an interactive and informative session to equip all employees from junior members of staff, members of the management team and board-level positions with an overview of the Equality Act 2010 legislation and best practice tips to prevent discrimination. It will aim to help participants to understand their responsibilities within the Act from a practical approach and HR perspective. The workshop will comprise presentation-style training combined with practical exercises based on experience and, time permitting, case studies to promote the transfer of learning.

All Bhayani Law courses come with learning materials and a point of contact for queries throughout the course and for a period of 4 weeks after completion.
