This policy applies to every job applicant, employee and to those who provide Auto Technics Ltd with goods and services. It applies to all of our activities, including:

Auto Technics Ltd will ensure there is no discrimination where TUPE applies, particularly around continuous employment rights and equal pay legislation.

We will provide training in and communicate equality and diversity issues for all staff and inform them of their rights to protection from harassment, discrimination or victimisation. Our communication of equality includes:

  • Employee handbooks

  • Asking staff to contribute to our policy

Managers and staff are encouraged to contribute to our on-going equality improvement process and are asked to provide input into our evolving policy. This helps promote good relationships between all employees and helps employees understand and value one another. Equality communication is provided regularly, both on a formal and informal basis. Any changes to our policy are briefed to our staff and management team.
