Equal Opportunities

Harvest Oak has adopted equal opportunities in its working practices and requires that any employee or sub-contractor should also be committed to equal opportunities.

Harvest Oak will seek to ensure equality of opportunity and treatment for all persons. No person or group of persons should be treated less favourably then any other person or group of persons because of their ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age or any other factor, that maybe irrelevant to business need.

The Company is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in employment with the intention of ensuring that the criteria for appointment and promotion are based solely upon a persons merit and ability in being able to carry out the duties of a particular job. As part of the policy, the Company would make it clear that abuse and harassment of a racial or sexual nature by employees towards other employees or any other person is regarded as gross misconduct. Sub contractors working for the company for the Company are required to behave in a similar manner.

Any employee who believes that he or she has been unfairly treated in any sense associated with this policy is entitled to raise the matter through the appropriate Grievance Procedure.
