Equality Act 2010 Although sometimes used interchangeably, the terms ‘equality’ and ‘diversity’ are not the same.

Equality
Equality in the workplace takes on the same meaning as it does in your everyday life. It is defined as treating everyone the same, regardless of their differences. Whether the difference is a person's age, race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national origin or physical disability, he/she is entitled to be held in the same esteem as any of his co-workers

Diversity
Literally means difference. When it is used as a contrast or addition to equality, it is about recognising individual as well as group differences, treating people as individuals, and placing positive value on diversity in the community and in the workforce Outcome 4 Learned helplessness
Definition: A condition in which one becomes unable to help oneself due to previous failed attempts at controlling one's life; also, a condition in which a person establishes and maintains contact with another by adopting a helpless, powerless stance

Example: Learned helplessness is conditioned behaviour in which an individual gives up trying to escape a painful situation after repeatedly failing to escape.

As an employer, you are legally responsible for acts of discrimination, harassment and victimisation carried out by workers who are employed by you in the course of their employment.

You are also legally responsible as the ‘principal’ for the acts of your agents done with your authority. Your agent is someone you have instructed to do something on your behalf, but who is not employed by you. It does not matter whether you have a formal contract with them, as long as:

• The worker was acting in the course of their employment (i.e. while they were doing their job), OR
• Your agent was acting within the general scope of your authority (i.e.while they were carrying out your instructions)

It does not matter whether or not you:
a) knew about or b) approved of what the worker or agent did.
