Company policy – Disabled people

The employment and recruitment policies are kept under review so as to reflect this.

The introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (1995) provides both current and potential employees with new legislative protection regarding employment rights. Romak recognises these rights and wishes to support people who may need special assistance.

The Act itself gives disabled people protection against discrimination in employment and introduces legislation covering the provision of goods, facilities, services and property. It also provides a number of new rights and duties regarding employment. The basic philosophy underlying the Act is that a disabled person should not be treated less favourably, on account of their disability, than others who do not have the disability.

The majority of disabled people are as effective as able-bodied people and will need no additional help in settling into work and developing their employment potential. However, for those who need assistance Romak will provide support.

ROMAK IS COMMITTED TO EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES IN EMPLOYMENT. WITHIN THE CONSTRAINTS OF LEGITIMATE JOB REQUIREMENTS IT WILL TREAT APPLICATIONS FROM DISABLED PEOPLE IN THE SAME WAY AS THOSE FROM PERSONS WITHOUT A DISABILITY.

ROMAK WILL PROVIDE ALL FEASIBLE SUPPORT FOR DISABLED EMPLOYEES WITHIN ROMAK, WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF EXTERNAL AGENCIES WHERE APPROPRIATE, TO ENABLE THEM TO WORK TO MAXIMUM EFFECT WITHIN ANY LIMITS IMPOSED BY THEIR DISABILITY.
