At Slater and Gordon UK we believe that the diversity of our workforce is one of our greatest assets.
We are committed to tackling discrimination, prejudice and exploitation in all its forms and to provide equality of opportunity for everyone. We believe that it is only by offering equality of opportunity that we can achieve the goals we set ourselves when championing the rights of the individual through the provision of legal services.
We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all staff members and job applicants. We aim to create a working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and in which all decisions are based on merit.
We do not discriminate against staff members or job applicants on the basis of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.
The principles of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity also apply to the way in which we treat our visitors, clients and suppliers. Likewise, employees will be protected from discrimination and harassment in dealings with our visitors, clients and suppliers.
We work closely with several organisations to help us ensure that we meet our commitment of equality of opportunity for everyone, including, for example, Stonewall and the Black Solicitors Network.
We have established sound equal opportunity policies and practices that foster an environment where individuals can feel valued, and develop their abilities and potential without the fear and barriers caused by discrimination.
Our aim is to ensure that this quality and diversity policy is applied in full on a fair and consistent basis across the firm and its subsidiaries, and treated as an integral part of human resources, business planning and the delivery of all services that we provide.
