I had a disagreement about this when completing the old CIPD certificate in training practice, (I'm talking 1990's here). Their view was that you must always show ROI whereas my project wouldn't show ROI for at least 3 years which was a strategic decision made by the organisation. They would have none of it and so I didn't complete the programme.

Not sure Bryan, I don't think the individual would have much recourse unless they could prove that not having an induction had been discriminatory in some way and that would mean that they would have to have a protected characteristic for it to be considered.

interesting Blog, really thought provoking. Re the point about a 17 year old and them being treated differently because they are immature; I think one needs to consider that age is a protected characteristic under the Equality Act. So, if someone was treated more favourably based on their age, you may have a case to answer of indirect discrimination for those people who have received a more punitive outcome, for similar actions, just because they are older. It's a hot potato making decisions on that basis and wouldn't advocate that approach.
