The Equality Commission for Northern Ireland offers employers free and confidential help to review and get the most from their workplace equality policies

With many employees taking steps to return to the workplace after months spent working from home, now may be the time to think about reviewing your workplace policies such as those relating to:

  • equal opportunities
  • harassment
  • recruitment and selection
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • flexible working and others

You may even be considering introducing a customer service policy, particularly taking into account those customers and clients with disabilities.

If you’ve made a commitment to equality and diversity in your business, the Equality Commission may be able to help you to review your equality policies and provides a free and confidential service to businesses. Many businesses have already made use of this service and some have also availed of free training from the Equality Commission.

How do I make use of this service?

If your business is interested in reviewing its equality-related workplace policies you can contact Frank Fleming on Tel 028 90 500 681, or by emailing ffleming@equalityni.org.
