Gender identity; religion; climate change; Scottish independence and the COVID vaccine. Your employees are likely to disagree on these issues. There will be others. Those disagreements can sometimes lead to disputes and to employers having to step in.

If you have responsibility for people management you need to know:

  • How to identify a protected belief in UK law;
  • the importance of the right to manifest a belief as well as to hold it;
  • why some employers have got it wrong when interacting with employees who hold differing views; and
  • what your organisation can do to ensure you don't breach the law when managing differing views in the workplace

Tony Hadden and Hazel Coutts from our employment team discussed how employers should manage employees with differing views in the workplace.
