Law firm Mills & Reeve have allowed us to share this briefing paper on equality, diversity and discrimination within employment.
This briefing paper covers the basic principles behind UK equality legislation and an understanding of how it impacts on the day-to-day running of an organisation. Knowledge of these principles is essential for employers seeking to maximise potential and minimise exposure to legal claims.
Equality of opportunity and the wider concept of diversity are about treating people fairly and valuing the contribution that individuals can make regardless of their gender, age, sexuality, race, ethnicity, disability, religion, belief... It is about allowing all individuals to maximise their potential.
