Sexual Orientation

Are you sure your LGB staff are not suffering unfair treatment?

Take the case of Tony, who is gay and works in the kitchens of a large hotel. He has to take a lot of banter from his other straight colleagues, both male and female, that borders on harassment, and his boss constantly avoids the issue. How do you ensure people recognise the grey line between harmless banter and offensive behaviour and deal with it appropriately?

More than one in twenty people in the current UK workforce are lesbian, gay or bisexual (LGB) The Equality Act 2010 outlaws discrimination in the workplace on the basis of sexual orientation. This exclusive training solution available on video or via e-learning, demonstrates how treating people with respect and dignity creates a working environment which is both pleasant and productive.

'Sexual Orientation: Respecting lesbian, gay and bisexual people in the workplace' will enable your staff to have a better understanding of:

  • The legal and moral responsibilities of all levels of staff.
  • Why certain behaviours are inappropriate.
  • Why it is no defence to say you did not intend to cause distress.
  • The fact that more than one in twenty people are lesbian, gay or bisexual.
  • Why you can't always be sure of someone's sexual orientation, and therefore should not make assumptions.
  • The knowledge and skills necessary to work successfully as part of a diverse team.
