EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES POLICY
1. Policy Statement
Paragon is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to a policy of treating all its employees and job applicants equally.
It is the policy of Paragon to take all reasonable steps to employ and promote employees on the basis of their abilities and qualifications without regard to race, color, ethnic origin, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status and/or disability.
Paragon will appoint, train, develop and promote on the basis of merit and ability alone. Employees have a duty to co-operate with Paragon to ensure that this policy is effective to ensure equal opportunities and to prevent discrimination. Action under Paragon’s disciplinary procedure will be taken against any employee who is found
to have committed an act of improper unlawful discrimination. Serious breaches of the equal opportunities policy will be treated as potential gross misconduct and
could render the employee liable to summary dismissal. Employees should also bear in mind that they can be held personally liable for any act of unlawful discrimination. Employees must not harass or intimidate other employees on the grounds of race,
colour, ethnic origin, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability. Such behaviour will be treated as potential gross misconduct under Paragon’s disciplinary procedure.
Employees should draw the attention of their line manager to suspected
discriminatory acts or practices. Employees must not victimise or retaliate against an
employee who has made allegations or complaints of discrimination or who has
provided information about such discrimination. Such behaviour will be treated as
potential gross misconduct under
Paragon’s disciplinary procedure. Employees
should support colleagues who suffer such treatment and are making a complaint.
2. Sources of Recruitment
The recruitment process will be conducted in such a way as to result in the selection of the most suitable person for the job in respect of experience, abilities and
qualifications. Paragon is committed to applying its equal opportunities policy at all
stages of recruitment and selection.
Recruitment publicity must positively encourage applications from all suitably
qualified and experienced people. When advertising job vacancies, in order to
attract applications from all sections of the community, Paragon will, as far as reasonably practicable:
- Ensure advertisements are not confined to those areas or publications which
would exclude a higher proportion of a particular gender, sexual orientation, religion or racial group or which would exclude disabled job applicants;
- Avoid prescribing any unnecessary requirements which would exclude a higher proportion of a particular gender, sexual orientation, religion or racial group or which would exclude disabled job applicants;
- Avoid prescribing any requirements as to marital status;
- Where vacancies may be filled by promotion or transfer, they will be published to all eligible employees in such a way that they do not restrict applications from employees of and particular gender, sexual orientation, religion or racial group or from employees with a disability;
- Ensure that the setting of age limits, as a criterion of any specific job is justifiable.
4. Selection methods
The selection process will be carried out consistently for all jobs at all levels. The Company will ensure that this equal opportunities policy is available to all staff and in particular is given to all staff with responsibility for recruitment, selection and promotion. The selection of new staff will be based on the job requirements and the individual’s suitability and ability to do, or to train for, the job in question. With disabled job applicants,
Paragon will have regard to its duty to make reasonable adjustments to work provisions, criteria or practices or to work premises in order to ensure that the disabled person is not placed at a substantial disadvantage in comparison with persons who are not disabled.
5. Selection Tests
Selection tests which are used will be limited to questions relating to the particular job and/or career requirements. The tests will measure the individual’s actual or inherent ability to do or to train for the work or career. Thus, questions or exercises on matters which may be unfamiliar to racial minority applicants or applicants of a particular sex, sexual orientation or religion will not be included in the tests if they are unrelated to the requirements of the particular job. The tests which are used will be reviewed from time to time in order to ensure that they remain relevant and free from any unjustifiable bias, either in content or in scoring mechanism.
6. Applications and Interviewing
All Paragon applications will be processed in the same way. The staff responsible for short-listing, interviewing and selecting candidates will be clearly informed of the selection criteria and of the need for their consistent application.Whenever possible, all applicants will be interviewed by at least two people. All questions that are put to the applicants will relate to the requirements of the job.
If it is necessary to assess whether personal circumstances will affect the
performance of the job (for example, if the job involves unsociable hours or extensive travel), this will be discussed objectively, without detailed questions based on assumptions about race, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, sexual orientations, marital status, children and domestic obligations.
7. Training, Transfer and Promotion
Paragon will take such measures as may be necessary to ensure the proper training, supervision and instruction for all line managers in order to familiarise them with Paragon’s policy on equal opportunities, and in order to help them identify
discriminatory acts or practices and to ensure that they promote equal opportunity within the departments for which they are responsible
All persons responsible for selecting new employees, employees for training, or for transfer to other jobs, must not discriminate on gender, racial or religious grounds and on the grounds of the employee’s disability, age, marital status or sexual orientation. Where a promotional system is in operation, the assessment criteria will be examined to ensure that they are not discriminatory. The promotional system will be checked from time to time in order to assess how it is working in practice. When a group of workers predominantly of one race, religion, sex or sexual orientation or a worker with a disability appears to be excluded from access to promotion, transfer and training and to other benefits, the promotional system will be reviewed to ensure where is no unlawful discrimination.
Where general ability and personal quality are the main requirements for promotion
to a post, care will be taken to consider favourable candidates of all races, religions,
sexual orientations and both sexes with different career patterns
and general experience.
8. Terms of Employment, Benefits, Facilities and Services
All terms of employment, benefits, facilities and service will be reviewed from time to time, in order to ensure that there is no unlawful discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, ethnic origin, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability.
9. Equal Pay
Paragon is committed to equal pay in employment. It believes its male and female employees should receive equal pay for like work, work rated as equivalent or work
of equal value. In order to achieve this, Paragon will endeavour to maintain a pay system that is transparent, free from bias and based on objective criteria.
10. Grievances and Complaints
All allegations of discrimination will be dealt with seriously, confidentially and speedily. Paragon will not ignore or treat lightly grievances or complaints about discrimination from members of a particular sex, sexual orientation, religion or racial group or from disabled employees. Such complaints should be raised promptly under the terms of the Paragon’s grievance procedure.
11. Monitoring Equal Opportunity
Paragon will regularly monitor the effects of selection decisions and personnel practices and procedures in order to assess whether equal opportunity is being achieved. This will also involve considering any possible indirectly discriminatory effects of its working practices.
