Declan O'Dempsey to speak at the Council for Racial Equality’s Inaugural Human Rights and Equality event

On 6 April 2017 Declan O’Dempsey will be at UNISON’s headquarters in Belfast addressing the Northern Ireland Council for Racial Equality’s Inaugural Human Rights and Equality event: “Brexit and Human Rights Protections” on “How businesses can use the law to combat racism”. Declan’s talk will cover the way in which employers and businesses can use legislation such as The Race Relations (Northern Ireland) Order 1997 and the Northern Ireland Act 1998 to stem the rise in racial incidents outside and inside the workplace.  He will stress that businesses play a role which is larger than that of employer, and show how businesses can use the public sector equality duty to ensure that local and central government take action against racial intolerance.”
