Discrimination in the Workplace 2022

February 8, 2022 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (CET)
Ends: 2:00 PM (CET)

In Collaboration with the IBJ

Reserving a vacancy for male candidates only, or refusing to promote a pregnant woman? Of course, your company would never do such a thing - that is discrimination! But what about only advertising a vacancy internally in your company, so that employees can look for new colleagues from within their own networks? Well-intentioned, but perhaps also a form of discrimination?

Discrimination in the workplace can be very subtle. Is your company aware of all the forms that discrimination can take – both direct and indirect? How can you make sure you are prepared for claims brought by employees or job applicants? What about gender, age, religion, origin, union affiliation, etc., and what about non-vaccinated employees (Covid-19)? What measures can your company take to avoid unequal treatment during the recruitment process, during employment, and on termination of an employment contract? 

During this webinar, we will discuss the do's and don'ts in each of the three phases of the employment relationship and take a look at recent case law regarding discrimination issues.
