Discriminatory behaviours and actions that affect a person or group with certain personal characteristics can become entrenched in an organisation or community. These behaviours often become part of organisation’s culture and are reinforced by policies or procedures. If an organisation has a lot of complaints about the same or similar issues, it might be because of entrenched discrimination, also known as systemic discrimination. For example, a factory makes all employees start at 6am. This might seem to treat everyone equally, but it could disadvantage employees needing to care for children, who are usually women. If it is not a reasonable requirement, this will be indirect discrimination. Victimisation Victimisation is subjecting, or threatening to subject, someone to something detrimental because they have asserted their rights under equal opportunity law, made a complaint, helped someone else to make a complaint, or refused to do something because it would be discrimination, sexual harassment or victimisation. For example, Donna’s boss fires her after she complains that a colleague is sexually harassing her. 9.Define 3 real benefits of planning. 1. Planning helps decision makers by providing guidelines and goals for future decisions. 2. Planning helps a manager exercise more control in a situation, establish goals "proactively" and consider contingencies. 3. Planning can help quantify goals and establish a means of measuring success. 4. Planning can help insure that a coherent set of actions are implemented that are consistent with the values and priorities of the decision maker. 5. Planning helps allocate limited resources like staff, materials, and time in an orderly and systematic manner.
