Non Discrimination and Equality/Diversity
Turner Parkinson will deal with all persons with the same attention, courtesy and consideration regardless of sex, gender reassignment, age, marital or civil partnership status, race, colour, religion, nationality, ethnic or national origins, membership or non-membership of a trade union, disability, sexual orientation, or religious or political belief.
The firm is opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination and is committed to providing equal opportunities in employment, provision of services and the appointment of any external supplier. The same applies to all complaint handling and disciplinary processes and procedures.
Codes of Practice on discrimination relating to sex, disability, age, race, religion and belief and sexual orientation have been produced by the Equality and Human Rights Commission and other statutory bodies, including The Law Society. Turner Parkinson’s policy complies with The Law Society’s Code of Conduct and in the event of any alterations to the Code of Conduct, the firm shall be deemed to have adopted those changes from the time they come into force.
