I’m Margaret Jones, the Equality and Diversity Officer on the Nurture, Equip and Thrive (NET) project in the Torfaen, Merthyr Tydfil, Caerphilly, Bridgend and Blaenau Gwent local authorities. The project is totally funded by the Welsh Government and European Social Fund with no direct cost to the SME.
I work with SME’s within those local authorities to assist them to introduce and / or update their HR policies and procedures, raise employers’ and managers’ awareness of their legal responsibility as an employer and ensuring the policies and procedures focus on equality, diversity and inclusion. This work will also look at whatever good practice can be included in the organisation’s policies and procedures.
Having those policies and procedures in place will inform and direct managers and employees on their rights and responsibilities and what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour and language in the workplace. Ensuring that employment policies and procedures are compliant with domestic legislation and communicated to staff is a good defence if, unfortunately, you are taken to an Employment Tribunal.
If you would benefit from my help please contact me:
