Equality and Diversity Policy
A Guide to Your Rights and Our Responsibilities
The Directors of CTS Training Limited, (CTS) in full support of the Equal Opportunities and Diversity Policy, make this statement jointly.
CTS are committed to the development of a positive policy that promotes equal opportunity to all. Our equality ethos accepts that everybody is different but has the right to be treated with an equal level of respect. CTS embraces the diversity of all its employees and does not tolerate discrimination against race, religious belief, colour, gender, physical disability, mental disability, age, ancestry, place of origin, marital status, source of income, family status colour, race, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or national origin or social background. It is your right to be treated equally and fairly and our responsibility to support this.
This principle applies in respect of all terms and conditions of work including pay, hours of work, holiday entitlement, overtime and shift work, work allocation, guaranteed earnings, sick pay, pensions, recruitment, training, promotion and redundancy.
CTS, through managers, undertake to draw to the attention of all employees, opportunities for training and promotion. CTS also undertake to make all its employees aware of this policy.
We review our policy by-annually, to ensure it remains effective and inline with current legislations.
If any employee or learner considers that s/he suffers from any unequal treatment, in any area outlined above, they may have a complaint, which will be dealt with through the established grievance and disciplinary procedures.
