It is the aim of Togher Group to be an equal opportunity employer. The Group commits itself to promote and develop equal opportunities and will keep under review its policies, procedures and practices to ensure that they accord with the principles of equal opportunities and are constantly applied.

The Responsibility of Employers

It is the responsibility of senior management to provide equal opportunities for all job applicants and current employees.
Senior Management must therefore adopt, implement and monitor our equal opportunities policy to ensure that there is no discrimination and that equal opportunity is genuinely available to all.
Copies of this policy are available to all staff, both within the office and on each site.

Equal Opportunities Policy

The following list of responsibilities for recruitment, training and promotion will be
adopted throughout the group:

  • No job applicant or employee will receive less favourable treatment than another on the grounds of race, colour, creed, religion, ethnic origin, nationality, sex, marital status, disability, sexuality or social status.
  • No applicant or employee will be placed at a disadvantage by requirements or conditions which have a disproportionately adverse effect on his or her racial group and which cannot be shown to be justifiable on other than racial grounds.
  • Where appropriate and where permissible under the Race Relations Act, employees of underrepresented racial groups will be given training and encouragement to achieve equal opportunities within the organisation.

To ensure that our equal opportunities policy is effective the following principles will be actioned by directors

  • Overall responsibility for the policy will be given to a member of senior management.
  • Discussion and, where appropriate, agreement with trade union or employee representatives of the policy’s contents will be implemented.
  • The policy will be known by all employees and if possible by all job applicants.

  • When advertising or sending our literature to potential applicants include a statement that the Togher Group of Companies are “Equal Opportunities Employers”.
