Legislation and good practice

As an organisation, we comply with current employment legislation and recognise good practice, and are committed to a policy of equal opportunity and diversity in all employment aspects. This is based solely on a person’s ability to satisfy objective job requirements, where individual differences and the contribution of all our workforce is recognised and valued.

The organisation opposes all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination and considers such behaviours to be misconduct that can lead to disciplinary action.

We also aim to ensure that equality and diversity principles influence and inform the culture of the organisation and we recognise equality in the workplace as good management practice and sound business sense.

We are committed to ensuring that all employees are provided with the appropriate level of knowledge, training and awareness in equality and diversity issues.
