Equal Opportunities Policy

Manic Merchandise is an equal opportunities employer. This means that it is the Company's policy that there should be no discrimination against or harassment of any employee or job applicant either directly or indirectly on the grounds of:

  • Race, colour, nationality or national or ethnic origin ("race");
  • Sex or marital status;
  • Disability (e.g., a long term mental or physical impairment);
  • Sexual orientation;
  • Religion or philosophical belief;
  • Age

The Company's policy is to

  • Eliminate, as far as is reasonably possible, discrimination and harassment from the workplace;
  • Encourage all its employees to take an active role against all forms of discrimination and harassment;
  • Demonstrate to all employees that they can rely upon the Company's support in cases of discrimination or harassment at work.

The Company is fully committed to providing a good and harmonious working environment that offers equal treatment and equal opportunities for all employees and where every employee is treated with respect and dignity. The Company's aim is that remuneration, recruitment, promotion and retention should not be affected by irrelevant considerations and stereotyping.

The Company recognises that the provision of equal opportunities in the workplace is not only good management practice, it also makes sound business sense. The Company's equal opportunities policy will help all employees develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the workforce will be fully utilised to maximise the efficiency of the organisation.

Breaches of the Company's equal opportunities policy and procedures and any unfair or unlawful discrimination will not be tolerated and will be dealt with under the disciplinary procedures. In serious cases, this could lead to dismissal of the relevant individual. This policy and accompanying action programmes must be communicated widely and effectively throughout the workforce and to potential employees.

It is the responsibility of management at all levels to ensure that such communication takes place.
