Register for EOC’s training workshops this fall
The EOC’s 2018 fall training programme is now open for enrolment. Spanning from mid-September to late November, the programme features four free courses touching on the Commission’s role, the anti-discrimination ordinances, racial inclusion in the workplace, sexual harassment and the notion of vicarious liability. These are complemented by six paid courses that offer an in-depth look at how to formulate and implement human resources (HR) policies free from discrimination based on sex, marital status, pregnancy, family status and race, as well as a sound and transparent complaint-handling mechanism. Business owners, HR practitioners and managers would find the latter particularly pertinent to their daily work.
