Seminar Description

Seminar Description

Being an equal opportunities employer is good but this alone does not suffice. All employees, regardless of their gender, should be treated with dignity and respect. Employers have to ascertain that they themselves as well as their employees are protected against any potential discriminatory treatment, harassment particularly that SEXUAL in nature and/or victimization. This behaviour will undoubtedly adversely impact the organization as it might impinge on morale even leading to higher rates of absenteeism, job turnover and/or low job performance. At EU level, the Commission has deemed it necessary to propose to Council and Parliament to regulate the issue by imposing obligations on employers so as to, as far as possible, safeguard employees rights. Consequently these Regulations and Directives have been transposed into domestic legislation.
