This unit will also consider each of the protected characteristics identified in the Equality Act 2010, at the end of this unit will be several case studies that show how protected characteristics are related to discrimination.
  • Unit 4 – Unacceptable conduct in the workplace In this unit you will explore the different ways in which people may experience unacceptable conduct in the workplace by defining and giving definitions of stereotyping, prejudice, bullying, harassment and victimisation.
  • Unit 5 – Reporting concerns In the final unit we will consider what to do if an individual wishes to report a concern about bullying, harassment or discrimination.
