Harassment at Work is a practical book which equips employers and their advisers in the UK with the know-how to combat this problem and reduce the risk of damaging court cases. Written by lawyers from one of the UK's leading employment law firms, the book provides clear practical explanations of the law on all forms of work place harassment: racial, sexual, religion/belief, disability, bullying, sexual orientation and age; sets out what circumstances might lead to employers being liable; gives practical advice on how employers should implement workplace policies and training so that harassment problems can be avoided; and describes the procedures for resolving harassment cases - both internally and through the courts. This new second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated with new chapters on age discrimination and sexual orientation and transsexuals. Including a wealth of new case law, this edition also covers the draft regulations on race, sexual orientation, and religious or belief discrimination which provide for the first time a statutory definition of harassment.
