Respecting lesbian, gay and bisexual people in the workplace.

Take the case of Tony, who is gay and works in the kitchens of a large hotel. He has to take a lot of banter from his other straight colleagues, both male and female, that borders on harassment, and his boss constantly avoids the issue.

How do you ensure people recognise the grey line between harmless banter and offensive behaviour and deal with it appropriately?

The Equality Act 2010 outlaws discrimination in the workplace on the basis of sexual orientation. This course demonstrates how treating people with respect and dignity creates a working environment which is both pleasant and productive.
