London is definitely my second home and my 20 years in that city has made me a woman that I am today. What I miss the most from my corporate job was to defend and represent women during challenging times at work.
Today I want to talk a bit about the basis of harassment in workplaces.
Harassments could be due to race, sex, marital status, and a host of other things. And women, for as long humans exist, have had their fair share of abuse in workplaces. To protect yourself from the harm of the hurtful experiences that can arise in the case of discrimination, you need to have a solid HR contract in that regard.
The Equality Act 2010 legally makes sure that your right is protected. Even if employers go out of order to break the agreement of anti-harassment and discrimination contracts. They would have to pay for their actions as dictated by the law. If there is a need to complain about the inconvenience at work, there is a due procedure for it that you can follow.
Knowing your rights and to understand the basics of HR is what will give you confidence to feel protected.
