Rose Builders & Contractors are committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all staff, and recognises that it is unlawful for anyone to discriminate directly or indirectly because of any of the 9 protected characteristics (age, gender reassignment, disability, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation) or any other irrelevant factor.
In line with the Equality Act 2010, Rose Builders & Contractors are aware of the theory of associative discrimination (where an individual is directly discriminated against for the association with another individual) and perceptive discrimination (where an employee is directly discriminated against because of a perception that they have a protected characteristic).
Rose Builders & Contractors are committed to providing staff of all ages and backgrounds with opportunities to maximise their skills and achieve their potential, offering flexible working arrangements wherever possible. Assessment for recruitment, selection, appraisal, training and career progression purposes is based entirely on the individual’s ability and suitability for the work.
Victimisation, such as being denied a training opportunity or a promotion because the employee has previously made or supported a complaint or raised a grievance will not be tolerated.
The responsibility for implementing this policy is shared by everyone at Rose Builders & Contractors. The grievance policy is available for all employees should it be required and will be dealt with confidentially and sensitively.
