    Correct Answer
    A. An attitude or behaviour towards people based on stereotypes of traditional gender roles.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is an attitude or behavior towards people based on stereotypes of traditional gender roles. Sexism refers to the discrimination or prejudice against individuals based on their gender, typically favoring males over females. It involves the belief in and reinforcement of gender stereotypes, such as the idea that women are less capable or deserving than men. This can manifest in various ways, including unequal treatment, unequal opportunities, and the perpetuation of harmful gender norms and expectations.

    An act of prejudice would be:

    • A.

      Taking all the staff on a meal at the end of the year to celebrate the company’s success.

    • B.

      Not promoting any Irish people within the company.

    • C.

      Offering training to staff.

    Correct Answer
    B. Not promoting any Irish people within the company.
    Explanation
    The act of prejudice in this scenario is not promoting any Irish people within the company. This is because prejudice refers to unfair treatment or discrimination based on certain characteristics, such as nationality or ethnicity. By not promoting any Irish people, the company is exhibiting bias and discrimination against a specific group, which is an act of prejudice. The other options, taking all staff on a meal to celebrate success and offering training to staff, do not involve any form of prejudice as they are inclusive and do not discriminate against any particular group.

    decide to leave, or remain a member of, a trade union
    belong to a trade union of your choice, even if it is different from the one recognised by your employer

      Child Protection Agency

    • B.

      Job Centre Plus

    • C.

      Criminal Records Bureau

    Correct Answer
    C. Criminal Records Bureau
    Explanation
    An employer would check whether a job applicant has a criminal record with the Criminal Records Bureau. The Criminal Records Bureau is responsible for providing information on an individual's criminal history, including any convictions or cautions. This helps employers make informed decisions about the suitability of an applicant for a particular job role, especially those that involve working with vulnerable individuals or require a high level of trust and responsibility. The Child Protection Agency and Job Centre Plus do not have the authority or resources to provide this specific information.
