Equal Opportunities in the Workplace: Recruitment & Selection


Employers run a great risk if they fail to ensure that all applicants and candidates for employment are treated fairly and equally.

This risk results from the legal responsibilities that must be met when recruiting and selecting employees – responsibilities that were clearly laid out in the Equality Act 2010.

This course takes the Equality Act as its base and uses it to explain and demonstrate both the legal requirements and best practices that contribute towards a credible and effective recruitment and selection process.
