Taylor&Emmet to hold discrimination master class for local businesses

Employment law experts at Taylor&Emmet are equipping local businesses with the tools to tackle equality and diversity by inviting them to a free discrimination master class.

Solicitors from the Sheffield firm are inviting employers to the event on 17 September at the Crucible in Sheffield which will address the hard issues and demonstrate how to manage conflicting rights in the workplace.

Using case studies and real life examples to recap on the equality and diversity fundamentals, the master class will also discuss future legislation and explore difficult topics at the frontiers of discrimination law.

“Balancing the rights of religion, sexual orientation and disability in the workplace is becoming ever more complex,” said David Poddington, Taylor&Emmet’s head of employment law (pictured).

“In fact, most people managers now live in fear of the word banter and at what point it becomes unlawful harassment. Our training will give delegates a solid understanding of the discrimination regulations and insight into how we expect current issues to develop, enabling them to address problems raised by employees without placing the business at risk.”

Taylor&Emmet’s experienced employment law team will deliver the training and answer questions from the audience. Delegates will also have an opportunity to network before the seminar closes. It will run from 8am to 10am in the Crucible’s Adelphi Room and includes a continental breakfast.
