Experienced Diversity & Inclusion consultant Diane Utatao provides us with excellent advice on how to develop, implement and support D&I initiatives in this exclusive interview. She cites “deciding what you want to achieve with your strategy, making the difficult choices and overcoming resistance & culture change” as the three biggest roadblocks to workplace D&I alignment with business.
Nicole Dunn of Carroll & O’Dea Lawyers provides us with another practical article! This time, she tells us that “it’s not uncommon that we encounter an employer at the wrong end of a claim because they’ve bought into an “employment law myth” so we’ve busted a few employment myths”.
When engaging a new employee it is important to “establish a system that will put the business in the best possible position to secure the right person for the job”. Legal issues to consider: employers need to be frank with candidates regarding the nature, terms and conditions of employment and that they do not fall foul of anti-discrimination laws.
