Workplace discrimination claims in Manchester must be investigated by a third party organization rather than the agency’s own Human Resources department or Affirmative Action department in order to ensure the removal of any bias in all decision making.
All discriminatory policies that alienate certain ethnic or racial groups must be terminated. For example, any policy that discriminates against natural hairstyles must be banned.
