Guardforce Security Services Limited intends to be an “employer of choice” within the industry and believes that our goal can only be achieved by treating all employees fairly and by being seen to be doing that.
Our Company recognizes its obligations under the Equality Act 2010, Race Relations Act 2010, Sex Discrimination Act 2008 and de Disability Discrimination Act 2005 to eliminate discrimination on the grounds of disability, race, sex, age, religion or belief,sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy or maternity or marital status and to promote equal opportunity in employment. We also understand that a right to equal pay between men and women, free of sex bias, is a fundamental principle of European Community Law and is conferred by UK legislation.
We are committed to the promotion of equal opportunities in all aspects of employment regardless of sex, race, parental or marital status, age, religion, disability or any other criteria not specifically related to skills, abilities and potential. No applicant or employee will be placed at a disadvantage by requirements or conditions that are not necessary to the performance of the job.
Our staff responsible for recruiting and selecting in their area must be aware that both employees and non-employees can bring claims under the Sex Discrimination Act, the Race Relations Act or the Disability Discrimination Act if they feel they have been unfairly treated during a selection process.
Appropriate disciplinary action, including summary dismissal for serious offences, will be taken against any employee who violates Guardforce Security Limited’s equal opportunities policy. Any employee who feels that he or she has been treated unfairly or feels that he or she has suffered harassment should raise their grievance through the appropriate channels.
Our directors, managers and supervisors are responsible for eliminating and preventing discrimination, harassment, intimidation or victimization. Failure to do so will be treated as failure to fulfill one of the responsibilities of their position.
Guardforce Security Services Limited recognizes that regular monitoring is essential to the effectiveness of this policy and, therefore, periodic checks will be made to ensure that discrimination does not arise. We intend, through our Equal Opportunities Policy, to avoid unfair treatment, to fairly reward the skills, experience and contribution of all staff and, therefore, increase competitiveness and enhance the reputation of our Company.
