Harassment and discrimination

In this episode of the podcast I analyse the report commissioned by the Women and Equalities Committee  into whether the use of non-disclosure agreements in harassment and discrimination cases is unethical, and how they should be dealt with in the future.

In this episode I will cover:

  • The 12 recommendations discussed in the report.
  • My critical analysis for each recommendation.
  • How to ensure your business is using non-disclosure agreements correctly.
  • Why having a robust process for dealing with harassment and discrimination is essential for a successful business.

Action Points

  1. Non-disclosure agreements and confidentiality clauses in settlement agreements must not be used to pressure those who have suffered from discrimination or harassment at work to keep silent.
  2. Ensure you have the appropriate procedures in place to prevent discrimination and harassment at work
  3. Ensure  management are trained in how to deal with complaints of this kind and that staff are trained to identify such behaviour and to report it
  4. Seek legal advice before making any decisions.
