What is Discrimination?
Direct discrimination occurs where someone is treated less favourably and put at a disadvantage on discriminatory grounds in relation to his
or her employment. Direct discrimination may even occur unintentionally.
Indirect discrimination occurs where the individual’s employment is subject to an unjustified condition which one person, due to for example
sex, race, age, nationality, religion, or religious or philosophical belief, finds more difficult to meet although, on the face of it, the condition or
requirement is neutral.
Victimisation occurs were an individual is treated less favourably than colleagues because s/he has taken action to assert their statutory
rights or assisted a colleague with information in that regard.
Harassment occurs where an individual is subjected to unwanted conduct that has the purpose or effect of violating that person’s dignity or
creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for the individual.
All employees and job applicants will be treated equally, fairly and with respect.
Training Development and progression opportunities are available to all employees.
No employee or potential employee will receive less favourable treatment or will be discriminated against on the grounds of sex, race, colour,
religion, religious or philosophical belief, nationality, ethnic or national origin, age, marital status, civil partnership, disability, sexual
orientation, trade union membership or activity or on the basis of gender re-assignment.
All employees have a personal responsibility for the application of this equal opportunity policy, which extends to the treatment of both
fellow employees and customers.
Any employee who believes s/he may have been unfairly discriminated against is encouraged to use our grievance procedure.
Any employee who conducts himself or herself in a discriminatory manner (whether on the grounds of sex, race, colour, religion, religious or
philosophical belief, nationality, age, ethnic origin, marital status, civil partnership, disability, sexual orientation or gender re-assignment)
towards another employee, customer or member of the public will be guilty of gross misconduct and will be subject to disciplinary act.
