Sex Discrimination eLearning is a 20 minute online course that ensures employees are aware of the issues associated with sex and related characteristics as a result of the introduction of anti-discrimination legislation in Jersey and what their role is in relation to these issues. Employers are responsible for the discriminatory actions of their employees. Complying with what is generally perceived as 'reasonably practicable' in this area is to communicate an Equality and Diversity Policy to all staff, and provide awareness training on the potential implications of discriminatory practices in the workplace.
The course is deliberately aimed at an awareness level which allows for a reasonable completion time.
In this training course employees will learn:
- Definition of the characteristics covered by sex under the law
- The benefits of being diversity aware
- The role of an individual in relation to sexual equality and diversity responsibilities in the workplace, and standards of behaviour expected
- The different types of discrimination including bullying and harassment
- How to make a complaint/seek help if they are either witness to, or a victim of, discriminatory practices
