The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is working with Sheffield care sector training provider, In Touch Care Ltd, to present a free seminar which addresses issues of vital importance to all businesses.
The seminar will explore when and how equality and human rights law applies to smaller businesses and what they can do to comply.
It will provide an opportunity to look behind the thinking of the requirements from practical experience and to engage in debate and share and explore the experience of businesses.
The session will look at definitions of legal terms and give practical advice on how to stay within the law when recruiting and promoting employees whilst reducing costs, retaining and attracting the best staff, improving productivity and performance.
The Session Leader will be Chrissy Meleady MBE, chief executive of Early Years Equality (a UK national charitable organisation championing multi-strand equalities).
She has advised government departments and business on a range of equalities and human rights issues.
Chrissy Meleady MBE said:
“Good practice in observing equality and human rights issues makes a positive difference to businesses’ productivity.
“This seminar will address how regulatory compliance in equality and human rights can add value to business by identifying the issues that they could face, and how to deal with them fairly.
“We will be unpicking recent case law to establish how upholding human rights and complying with equality regulations can safeguard businesses and how community cohesion can be improved.”
The event will take place at 5.30pm on Wednesday 18 June at In Touch Care Ltd, St Davids House, Drake Business Park, 11 Drake House Crescent, Sheffield, S20 7HT.
