“Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.”
Mutual respect is understanding that we all don’t share the same beliefs and values. Respecting the values, ideas and beliefs of others whilst not imposing our own on others.
It is the foundation for honesty, trust, and meaningful communication. In order for relationships to remain healthy, both partners must be equally respected and appreciated. Mutual respect is defined as a proper regard for the dignity of a person or position.
Mutual trust and confidence is a phrase used in English law, particularly with reference to contracts in UK labour law, to refer to the obligations owed in an employment relationship between the employer and the worker.
We should respect an individual’s differences which may be any of the following:
- National origin
- Sexual Orientation
- Marital Status
- Socio-economic differences
- Family structure
