A big part of this commitment includes rolling out training to all staff about their rights and responsibilities regarding the equality, diversity and inclusion. Responsibilities include staff conducting themselves to help the Firm provide equal opportunities in employment, and prevent bullying, harassment, victimisation and unlawful discrimination.
These rights carry responsibilities and we require all staff to recognise and act in accordance with them. In addition, we comply with all relevant legislation and good practice.
No individual will be unjustly discriminated against. This includes, but is not limited to, discrimination because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation.
