Ensuring your business is free from bullying discrimination and harassment

20 August 2017




Do you know how to ensure your business is free from bullying discrimination and harassment? Join Merilyn Speiser for the September ACA Insight and find out all you need to know.

Every day the news is full of horror stories relating to discrimination, harassment and bullying claims in the workplace. Navigating these areas of legislation in practice can be very challenging for businesses.

Through examples and case studies, Merilyn will help you:

  • Understand what behaviour is lawful and unlawful
  • Understand how your business needs to interpret and administer these areas of law – policy and procedure
  • Understand what support needs to be in place for your employees
  • Understand your responsibility as an employer or manager
