Equal Opportunities

Policy Statement

Mackenzie Stuart aims to be an equal opportunity employer, & has a policy for this purpose. This policy covers all aspects of employment, from vacancy advertising, selection recruitment* & training to conditions of service & reasons for termination of employment.

To ensure that this policy is operating effectively (& for no other purpose) Mackenzie Stuart maintains records of employees’ racial origins, gender & disability. Where necessary, employees will be able to check/correct their own record of these details. Otherwise, access to this information will be strictly restricted.

Ongoing monitoring & regular analysis of such records provide the basis for appropriate action to eliminate unlawful direct & indirect discrimination & promote equality of opportunity. Our processes, procedures & practices are regularly reviewed to reflect changing policy & learning.

Mackenzie Stuart is committed to equal opportunities both in the context of our status as an employer & as Consultants to our Clients. The recruitment practices of both our Clients & us are compliant, as is every aspect of our employment practice.

Mackenzie Stuart will ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment, & that, wherever possible, they are given the help they need to attain their full potential to the benefit of Mackenzie Stuart & themselves.

The cooperation of all employees is essential for the success of this policy. However, ultimate responsibility for achieving the policy’s objectives, & for ensuring compliance with the relevant Acts of Parliament as well as the various Codes of Practice, lies with Mackenzie Stuart. Behaviour or actions against the spirit &/or the letter of the laws on which this policy is based will be considered serious disciplinary matters, & may, in some cases, lead to dismissal.

All employees are inducted in respect of their responsibilities & the importance of adherence to this policy.

The Senior Partners of the business are responsible for delivering the policy & are accountable for its implementation.
