Equal Opportunities Policy

ABDO is committed to the promotion of equality. We provide employment equality to all, irrespective of:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender / gender reassignment
  • Race
  • Marriage and civil partnerships
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation

or on any other ground on which it is, or becomes, unlawful to discriminate against a protected characteristic not listed above.

It is our policy that all employment decisions are based on merit and the legitimate business needs of the organisation.

We offer a place of work where we enable and encourage all of our staff to work in an environment which allows them to fulfill their potential without fear of discrimination, harassment or victimisation.

Our policy on equal opportunities extends to all aspects of our employment responsibilities:

  • Recruitment and selection procedures
  • Terms of employment, including pay, conditions and benefits
  • Training, appraisal, career development and promotion
  • Work environment, conduct issues, disciplines and grievances
  • Termination of employment and references

The principles of non-discrimination and equal opportunities also apply to the way in which staff treat, colleagues, members, visitors, suppliers and former staff members.
