The aim of this policy is to communicate the commitment of the co-directors and company owners to the promotion of equality of opportunity at iTG Technolgies Limited.
It is our policy to provide employment equality to all, irrespective of:
We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. All job applicants, employees and others who work for us will be treated fairly and will not be discriminated against on any of the above grounds. Decisions about recruitment and selection, promotion, training or any other benefit will be made objectively and without unlawful discrimination.
We recognise that the provision of equal opportunities in the workplace is not only good management practice, it also makes sound business sense. Our equal opportunities policy will help all those who work for us to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the workforce will be utilised fully to maximise the efficiency of the organisation.
This policy applies to all those who work for (or apply to work for) the organisation, including (but not exclusively):
This policy is fully supported by the Senior Leadership Team.
Directors, managers and supervisors have specific responsibility for the effective implementation of this policy. Each also has responsibilities and we expect all our employees to abide by the policy and help create the equality environment which is its objective.
We will establish appropriate information and monitoring systems to assist the effective implementation of our equal opportunities policy. The effectiveness of our equal opportunities policy will be reviewed regularly [at least annually] by the Senior Leadership Team and action taken as necessary.
Employees who believe that they have suffered any form of discrimination, harassment or victimisation are entitled to raise the matter through the agreed procedures. All complaints of discrimination will be dealt with seriously, promptly and confidentially.
In addition to our internal procedures, employees have the right to pursue complaints of discrimination at an industrial tribunal or the Fair Employment Tribunal.
However, employees wishing to make a complaint to a tribunal will normally be required to raise their complaint under our internal grievance procedures first. Every effort will be made to ensure that employees who make complaints will not be victimised. Any complaint of victimisation will be dealt with seriously, promptly and confidentially. Victimisation will result in disciplinary action and may warrant dismissal.
