The Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission have developed a new eLearning module, called Equality and Human Rights in the Public Service to support and enable staff within public bodies to understand and meet their obligations under the Public Sector Equality and Human Rights Duty (Public Sector Duty).

This module is a way to support public bodies to implement the Public Sector Duty. The module is suitable for all public sector staff, across all grades and functions. The protection and promotion of equality and human rights is core to the work of public servants. We all have an obligation to contribute to implementing the Public Sector Duty.
