Equal Opportunities Policy Statement

This policy statement has the support of the trade unions UNISON & T&GWU

1.1. Fareham Borough Council is an equal opportunity employer and bases its employment practices on the concept of equality of opportunity.  Councillors and employees are committed to openness and fairness to all employees and members of the community, aiming to always ensure equality of treatment and access for all without unfair discrimination or prejudice.  We are committed to developing a working culture that is fair and inclusive, enabling all employees to make their distinct contributions to the services we provide.

1.2. We oppose all forms of discrimination or unfair treatment on the grounds of gender, race or ethnic origin, marital status, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, HIV status or religion.  No employee or job applicant will be disadvantaged by any condition or requirement which cannot be shown to be justifiable.  All possible steps will be taken to ensure that individuals are treated equally and fairly and that all employment related decisions are based solely on objective and unbiased criteria.  We will take all practical steps to facilitate the employment and continued employment of disabled people.

1.3. We require our managers to exercise leadership in this field by discouraging prejudice and by role-modelling appropriate behaviour.  We will ensure that all managers and employees are aware of their individual responsibilities to promote open and fair treatment and to prevent disadvantage and discrimination.  We will treat seriously all cases of discrimination, victimisation, harassment and bullying.  Where necessary, disciplinary action will be taken which may include dismissal.  We will regularly review our policies and practices to make sure that they are appropriate and operating effectively.
