This Week’s Hot Topics from Quest Cover
Date Posted: 14 Sep, 2022
We have been informed by the advisors that some of the hottest topics this week are:
Do you know that you could be accused of transgender discrimination if you refuse to address a transgender person by their chosen pronoun?
You need to ensure you understand the current situation and ensure you have a well drafted policy in place that complies with current case law
Failure to have correct policy in place and to ensure your staff understand correct behaviour can lead to claims of discrimination and unfair dismissal
If you have any questions, concerns or problems regarding transgender discrimination please call the Chamber HR advice line on 01455 852 037.
Cost of Living Support for Employees
Does an employer have a duty of care to their employees to support them during the cost-of-living crisis?
Be aware that failure to support employees could open an employer to claims of negligence, failure to uphold employee health & safety or protection of employee’s mental health
Employers should ensure they have appropriate policies in place and consider offering an employee assistance scheme.
If you have any questions, concerns or problems regarding this matter please call the Chamber HR advice line on 01455 852 037.
