Acas launches a new series of equality guides

Acas has launched a new series of equality guides to help employers and managers identify, tackle and prevent discrimination in the workplace. The guides give a basic understanding of equality law to help employers spot the warning signs of discrimination, prevent discrimination from happening in the first place, but also deal with discrimination if it occurs.

The three new free guides are:

–  Equality and Discrimination: understand the basics – outlines the fundamentals of what employers, and employees and their representatives need to know to comply with equality law.

–  Prevent discrimination: support equality – explains where discrimination is most likely to arise in the workplace and how to stop it happening.

–  Discrimination: what to do if it happens – is a step-by-step guide covering how an employee should raise a complaint of discrimination and how an employer should handle it.
