CDEC Ltd is an equal opportunities employer. The aim of our policy is to ensure that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, colour, ethnic or national origin, disability, socio-economic background, religious or political beliefs, trade union membership, family circumstances, sexual orientation or other irrelevant distinction. Neither shall they be disadvantaged by conditions or requirements that are not essential for carrying out the job.
To ensure that such direct or indirect discrimination does not occur, recruitment and other employment decisions will be regularly monitored in conjunction with ethnic records of job applicants and existing employees.
Selection criteria and procedures will also be regularly reviewed in the light of ethnic records to ensure that they are not adversely and unjustifiably affecting the opportunities of persons from a particular racial group, and that in recruitment and promotion exercises all candidates are considered solely on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities.
All employees will be given equal opportunity and encouraged to progress within the organisation.
Attention will be given to possible remedies for under-representation of any ethnic groups at particular levels within the company.
It is the duty of all employees to accept their personal responsibility in the implementation of the policy. At the same time, the company acknowledges that specific responsibilities fall upon management, supervisors and individuals professionally involved in recruitment and employee administration.
Any employee who believes that he or she has been unfairly treated in any sense associated with this policy is entitled to raise the matter through the appropriate grievance procedures.
