End of deadline to have an equality plan in companies.

A few days ago, deadline expired for companies with 50 or more employees to have an equality plan. issue As Professor Díaz de Terán explains, "organisations with these characteristics, as well as those that want to access certain subsidies, regardless of the number of employees, need an official certificate that accredits 50 hours of training in equality. This book can be useful for those who already have this training in equality, as it can serve as guide to implement the equality measures that best suit the characteristics of their business. It is also useful for anyone with an interest in training in equality to go deeper into these issues".
