Any person found to be discriminating directly or indirectly or victimising any employee, associate, contractor, customer or member of the public, will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal. The policy will be implemented in accordance with the appropriate statutory legislation in conjunction with Codes of Practice and guidance from the Equality and Human Rights Commission. We will maintain a neutral working environment in which no employee or worker should feel under threat or intimidated.
