The report also revealed that less than a third (32 percent) of workers would feel comfortable raising a claim in the event of discrimination at work.

 

Jeff Phipps, managing director of ADP, said: “Employers must stay alert to this issue, take a proactive approach to tackle potential prejudice and unconscious bias and ensure equal treatment for all.

 

“This is especially important as mass moves to remote working in the wake of COVID-19 change workforce dynamics. Policies and procedures may need to adapt accordingly to take account of how workers are being supported in this new and uncertain environment.”
