The Worker Protection (Amendment of Equality Act 2010) Act 2023, which will come into force on 26 October 2024, amends the Equality Act 2010 in two respects. It will introduce a new duty on employers to take reasonable steps to prevent sexual harassment of their employees, and give employment tribunals the power to uplift sexual harassment compensation by up to 25% where an employer is found to have breached this new duty.

 

We’ve no doubt you have policies and processes in place around workplace Sexual Harassment, but with these impending changes, it’s not enough to make simple wording alterations.

 

The change in focus in the legislation from redress to prevention imposes a new obligation on employers to be proactive in tackling sexual harassment.

 

With this is mind, our speakers will be sharing how you can use this legislative change proactively to:

  • Understand the risk levels in your industry
  • Explore what your internal data is telling you
  • Communicating with employees

 

Even more importantly, we’ll be discussing how leadership teams need to connect this topic with your brand reputation, regulatory compliance, ESG commitments and talent attraction.

HR has a huge part to play in providing a sustainable, effective response to this legislative change. Join us as we share how thinking differently about this topic can have far reaching positive outcomes. Book your place now.
