Rainbo is committed to providing a working environment in which employees are able to realise their full potential and contribute to business success irrespective of his or her age; disability; race, colour, nationality or ethnic origin; religion or belief; sex; sexual orientation, marital or civil partnership status, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, ensuring that the provisions of The Equality Act 2010 are strictly adhered to. This is a key employment value to which all employees are expected to give their support.
In order to create conditions in which this goal can be realised, Rainbo is committed to identifying and eliminating discriminatory practices, procedures, and attitudes throughout the organisation. Rainbo expects employees to support this commitment and to assist in its realisation in all possible ways.
Specifically, Rainbo aims to ensure that no employee or job applicant is discriminated against, either directly or indirectly, on the grounds of age; disability; race, colour, nationality or ethnic origin; religion or belief; sex; sexual orientation, marital or civil partnership status, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity. This commitment applies to all the aspects of employment outlined below:
- Recruitment and selection, including advertisements, job descriptions, interview and selection procedures
- Promotion and career development opportunities
- Terms and conditions of employment, and access to employment related benefits and facilities
- Grievance handling and the application of disciplinary procedures
- Selection for redundancy
Equal opportunities practice is developing constantly as social attitudes and legislation change. Rainbo will keep its policies under review and will implement changes where these could improve equality of opportunity. This commitment applies to all Rainbo’s employment policies and procedures, not just those specifically connected with equal opportunity.
