What are my obligations as an employer?
As an employer it is important to understand your responsibilities when hiring new employees and managing your existing workforce. These obligations also extend to the actions of your employees towards other workers, so it is important that they receive the right training and resources.
All employers should have in place a written policy on human rights or equal opportunity in the workplace. It is also recommended to have a process in place detailing what actions you take to reduce discrimination and the steps that will be followed if someone makes a complaint that their human rights have been violated.
