Equality Policy

"..every organisation should have an equality policy.."

Equality and Human Rights Commission

Equality Diversity

The Equality and Human Rights Commission have stated:
"that every organisation should have an equality policy to ensure equal opportunities, and share it with staff and (as appropriate) with customers, clients or service users and others who may be interested in it, such as organisations considering contracting with them".

Different sizes of organisations will want to think about what works for them. A large organisation with many different sites and layers of management at each site will need and equality / equal opportunities policy more complex than an employer with five staff at a single site."

The Equality Act 2010 which became law in 2010 has added significant impetus for all organisations to have a clear statement of their Equality Policy in relation to equal opportunities and diversity in the workplace.
