This Equal Opportunities Policy allows an employer to state their commitment to equal opportunities and a workplace free from discrimination and harassment and is drafted to promote good workplace relations.

This policy helps to protect employers against claims of age, sex, race or disability discrimination, and bullying in the workplace - also, discrimination based on sexual orientation, religion, maternity and related issues.

This policy complies with the Equality Act 2010 and the Equality Act 2010 (Amendment) Regulations 2023.

The clauses in this policy include:

  • Policy Statement
  • Definitions
  •   - Discrimination
      - Age
      - Disability
      - Gender Reassignment
      - Marital Status
      - Pregnancy & Maternity

  • Questions
  • Alteration of this Policy

Discrimination claims do not have a maximum compensation limit stated by law and so have the potential to be quite large. Plus an employer can also be ordered to pay interest on any compensation award.

Without a clear and implemented policy in place, an employer runs the risk of a claim against them.
