This practical report for employers and their advisers will ensure that you do not fall foul of the law on age and all the other anti-discrimination law. Employers are failing to address the challenge of age discrimination laws, according to ACAS.

The new age Discrimination Act is the most significant change in employment law since the 1970’s. How are you dealing with its implications? Are you fully aware of what can and cannot be said in recruitment ads – or even in the office? In addition to sex and race discrimination laws, employers have also had to cope with sexual orientation discrimination and religious discrimination.

David Martin, an expert on employment law and practice, analyzes the practical aspects of dealing with each of the anti-discrimination laws. He demonstrates how to ensure that paperwork and systems comply totally with the law and he provides a range of helpful case studies to illustrate the key issues and bring them to life.

Key report benefits:

1. Ensure you are fully aware of the mine-field that is discrimination law and the pitfall you need to avoid to comply
2.. Explain the latest legislation in sexual orientation and religious discrimination
3. Provide helpful case studies to highlight and explain the key areas you need to look out for to protect your organisation and staff
