QHRC – Introduction to the Anti Discrimination Act for Managers (online)

A half-day online session course focussing on responsibilities for managers and employers under the Anti Discrimination Act in Queensland 

Queensland Human Rights Commission (QHRC) presents Introduction to the Anti Discrimination Act for Managers (online)

This course takes a more in-depth look at the key elements of anti-discrimination law in Qld with additional focus on the responsibilities of managers, legal obligations of employers and how these affect management decisions.

How can management reduce risk for an organisation?

Organisations may be liable for staff behaviour under the Queensland Anti-Discrimination Act 1991, unless they can show they took ‘reasonable steps’ to prevent and manage it. Employers need to make sure that managers, supervisors and HR personnel are aware of their responsibilities to always take ‘reasonable steps’ to prevent and manage discrimination or harassment. ‘Reasonable steps’ include implementing effective policies and complaint procedures, and training for all staff on policies and legislation, taking all complaints seriously and dealing with them appropriately, and any other steps necessary to prevent and manage such behaviours.

Course content:

  • anti-discrimination law relating to the workplace;
  • vicarious liability and the ‘reasonable steps’ employers should take to prevent harm in the workplace;
  • sexual harassment;
  • best practice recruitment
  • QHRC complaints process.
