PHH Solicitors has long-standing policies clearly stating that discrimination or harassment in the work environment because of race, religion, colour, age, sex, national origin, disability status, sexual orientation, gender identity or protected veteran status is a violation of the company’s nondiscrimination policies, and PHH Solicitors has a commitment to zero tolerance of this type of behaviour.
These policies apply to all individuals, including part-time and supplemental employees, and agency resources.
The objective of our Equal Opportunity policy is to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted and otherwise treated solely on the basis of their relevant aptitudes, skills and abilities. Selection criteria and procedures will be frequently reviewed to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted, and treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities.
All employees will be given an equal opportunity, and where necessary training, to progress within the organisation.
In formulating this policy, PHH Solicitors take account of the legislative requirements as contained in the Equal Pay Act 1970, the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.
PHH Solicitors will review this policy regularly in order to ensure legislative accuracy and effective implementation.
