Essentials of Anti-Discrimination

Essentials of Anti-discrimination Training

Although most people are aware that ‘discrimination’ as a concept is generally unacceptable and even illegal, many can be unaware of the sometimes subtle and indirect ways that policies and behaviours can be discriminatory.
This Essentials of Anti-discrimination online compliance training module is designed to promote an awareness of what discrimination is, whom it affects, and how it can occur. In addition to examining the negative consequences that can arise from a discriminatory environment, the training also focuses on the positive benefits that diversity can bring to a workplace and how to foster a cohesive, productive and inclusive environment that promotes equal employment opportunity.

The Essentials of Anti-discrimination course covers the following major subject areas:

  • Concepts of Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)
  • A definition of discrimination
  • The anti-discrimination laws that apply at work
  • The negative effects of discrimination
  • Grounds of discrimination covered by the law
  • Areas of employment covered by the law
  • Direct discrimination and indirect discrimination
  • Example scenarios illustrating discrimination
  • Responsibilities of workers and employers
  • Lawful exceptions that apply to EEO
