New Ways of Working
All our employees are entitled to request and agree with their line manager, their own personal pattern of work. As long as our employees are able to do their job effectively, within the constraints of the business, and it has no negative impact on other employees, any change in their working time will be considered. In some jobs it is possible to get the work done at virtually any time, whilst for others the work may have to fit into a strict timetable in order to meet customer needs.
The Authority is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to opposing all forms of discrimination in the workplace. The Authority will not tolerate discrimination based upon age, creed, disability, marital status, race (which means colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origins), sex discrimination or sexual orientation. The aim of this policy is to ensure that all employees know that they are able to work in an environment that is free from discrimination and they are able to achieve their full potential in their job. The Authority will make decisions without reference to discriminatory criteria. Whilst the Directors of the Authority and the Human Resources section have overall responsibility for the effective operation and review of this Policy, all members of employees must be aware of the policy and should abide by its terms at all times.
The Authority recognises that employees are a major asset and will strive to ensure that no job applicant or employee is treated unfairly in all employment matters regardless of their age, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins, sex or marital status or disability. In addition, any condition or requirement will be removed which cannot be justified and which places a potential applicant or employee at a disadvantage or has adverse effects on members of a particular group. This policy applies to all employment matters including recruitment, promotion, transfer, training, grievance and disciplinary procedures, the application of employee benefits and to all terms and conditions of employment.
