Equal Opportunities Policy

Darcy Products Limited is committed to a policy of treating all its employees and job applicants equally. No employee or potential employee shall receive less favourable treatment or consideration on the grounds of race, colour, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, sex or marital status, or be disadvantaged by any conditions of employment or requirements that cannot be justified as necessary on operational grounds.

Every member of management and all employees are instructed that:-

  1. There should be no discrimination on account of race, colour, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, sex, disability, age or marital status.
  2. Darcy Products Limited will appoint, train, develop and promote on the basis of merit and ability.
  3. All employees have personal responsibility for the practical application of Darcy Products Limited’s equal opportunities policy.
  4. Special responsibility for the practical application of Darcy Products Limited’s equal opportunities policy falls upon Managers and Supervisors involved in the recruitment, selection, promotion and training of employees. These special responsibilities give rise to training needs for which provision will be made.
  5. Darcy Products Limited’s grievance procedure is available to any employee who believes that he or she may have been unfairly discriminated against.
  6. Disciplinary action will be taken against any employee who is found to have committed an act of unlawful discrimination. Serious breaches of the policy or the current discrimination regulations will be treated as gross misconduct, as will sexual or racial harassment. Such offences may also constitute a criminal offence actionable in the Criminal Courts.
  7. In the case of any doubt or concern about the application of the policy in any particular instance, any member of staff or employee should, in the first instance, consult their Supervisor or line Manager.
