Equality Act 2010: The Changes and Requirements
Thursday 16th June in Manchester (Mechanics Institute, Princess St)
Friday 17th June Sheffield (Centre in the Park, Norfolk Park)
From 10am to 4.30pm

This participative training seminar will look at:

  • the requirements of the Act; and
  • the implications of the changes for both employers and service providers.

The day will be interactive and each short presentation will be followed by a series of short case studies/scenarios to help explore the issues in practice. The emphasis will be on identifying the way that the new requirements could be applied and will highlight the implications of the legislation in practice.

Time is built into the programme for questions and answers on any issues raised.

The day will be facilitated by OSDC and the presentations on the legislation will be provided by Muriel Robison.
