As an equal opportunity employer, GWlegal is fully committed to treating all its employees and job applicants equally and values the diverse nature of our staff.
It is our aim to create a culture among staff where equality and diversity is central to all activities, and that all our parties are actively involved in the development and application of our policies and procedures.
GWlegal takes all reasonable steps to employ, train and promote employees on the basis of their experience, abilities and qualifications without regard to race, colour, ethnic origin, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age, marital or civil partnership status or disability.
We also take all reasonable steps to provide a work environment in which all employees are treated with respect and dignity and that is free of harassment based upon an employee’s race, colour, ethnic origin, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age, marital or civil partnership status or disability.
We will not condone any form of harassment, whether engaged in by employees or by outside third parties who do business with the Company, such as clients, customers, contractors and suppliers.
GWlegal is committed to equality in employment and has policies to support and reinforce this. These policies are subject to regular review to ensure that we continue to use best practice. Recruitment and selection procedures are also monitored to ensure that they are fair and are best practice.
In implementing its equality and diversity policy, GWlegal will comply with Chapter 2 of the Solicitors Code of Conduct and with current and future anti-discrimination legislation.
The policy will be monitored periodically by the practice to evaluate its effectiveness and make any changes as required. The policy will be updated to comply with changes in legislation and regulation.
GW participates in the annual Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) diversity survey, the results of which are published by the SRA in their annual diversity monitoring statistics. These statistics can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
Each new starter with the company will receive a copy of this policy.
