Free Webinar: Protected Characteristics 101 | a recap and recent developments |August 18th, 2pm
Are you concerned about the legal risks associated with discrimination in the workplace? If so, you'll want to join WorkNest's upcoming webinar. Their Employment Law Adviser and Solicitor, Kirstie Beattie, will help you avoid potential legal pitfalls by walking you through the nine protected characteristics under employment law.
It's against the law to discriminate against an employee on the basis of a protected characteristic such as sex, race or disability. But with case law constantly redefining what's capable of protection, it can be hard to keep up to speed. This can result in mishandled situations and potentially costly claims.
Join Beacon partner WorkNest as they take a deep dive into the protected categories of workers, shine a spotlight on recent developments regarding long COVID, and share examples to help you handle common employee issues without falling foul of the Equality Act 2010.
