Equality & Diversity
Equality and Diversity issues have taken centre stage for UK businesses as they compete to attract and retain the best staff. They need to be seen to offer a working environment where there is equality of opportunity for all if they are to be regarded as the employer of choice in their industry.
We work with a wide range of organisations and businesses with differing employee profiles – from investment banks, financial services organisations and higher education institutions to manufacturing companies of all sizes and government departments – delivering tailored training programmes.
We can assist through:
Risk management – we identify risk management issues within organisations and any deficiencies in existing procedures, offering practical advice on how to reduce risk.
Policies – we ensure policies are up-to-date and structured to meet the needs of your organisation while fully complying with the law.
Risk reduction – we offer training for key staff to help reduce the risk of time consuming and expensive tribunal claims. This also promotes communication within the organisation about discrimination issues, which can flush out problems before they become contentious.
We have an outstanding record of helping clients to resolve discrimination claims, from advising internal resolution to handling tribunal proceedings including advocacy.
When working with you, we:
- Work as part of your team
- Ensure our lawyer(s) are well known to you and familiar with your business
- Provide a rapid response
- Identify merits and potential risks and provide pragmatic advice
- Keep you informed at all times of case developments.
