Equal employment opportunities for multicultural Australia
CultureJune 30, 2014
As Australians we pride ourselves on being a multicultural nation. Our everyday workplaces have multiple cultures and beliefs often well celebrated, although forms of discrimination and harassment are apparent within some of these. Human rights and anti-discrimination law must be practiced at your workplace. As employers you have the responsibility to put in place effective anti-discrimination and anti-harassment procedures and policies, this way your business can achieve efficiency and increased productivity. At Employsure we help businesses follow and implement these policies and procedures.
Ramadan began yesterday, this is a time of prayer, fasting, charity-giving and self-accountability for Muslims in Australia. This religious period should be celebrated whilst still maintaining your daily work routine. Employees will need be mindful of their energy levels at work whilst fasting for example. Employers if they need assistance in establishing the best policies and guidelines for their workers should contact the Australian Human Rights Commission or the Fair Work Ombudsman. At Employsure we support equal employment opportunities for all Australians because we all call Australia home.
