Employers should have Equal Opportunities policies to promote equality, ensure fairness and comply with statutory requirements to avoid unlawful discriminatory practices which could expose employers to employment tribunal claims.  An employer is responsible for the actions taken by employees during their employment and for ensuring that one employee does not knowingly help another employee discriminate against another employee.

Equal Opportunities policies

Equal Opportunities policies should cover all aspects of employment including:
  • Job advertising, application forms and interviews
  • Recruitment decisions
  • Interviews
  • Terms and conditions of employment including equal pay
  • Appraisals
  • Employment procedures
  • Access to training and promotion opportunities
  • Prevention of harassment and bullying
  • Preventing discrimination by clients/customers.
Lawson-West can offer employment contract healthchecks and check your staff handbooks to ensure that any non compliance with an Equal Opportunities policy can be treated as a disciplinary matter.

If you would like further information on Equal Opportunities policies and what they need to contain, please call Ashley Hunt, Carrie-Ann Randall or Vaishali Thakerar on 0116 212 1000 now.
