Backhouse Jones participates in the annual SRA Equality and Diversity survey. A summary of last year’s results can be obtained upon request. Please contact:firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. A summary of our Equality and Diversity policy is set out below.
Everybody at Backhouse Jones is aware of the firm’s policy in relation to discrimination and equality and diversity, which covers all our professional dealings including clients, other solicitors, barristers and third parties.
In addition to our obligations not to discriminate against, harass or victimise those with a disability we will also make reasonable adjustments to prevent employees, directors and clients who are disabled from being at a disadvantage in comparison with those who are not disabled.
We are committed to avoiding discrimination in our dealings with clients, directors, employees and third parties and are committed to promoting diversity in our professional activities.
We will treat everybody equally and with the same attention, courtesy and respect. We will ensure that nobody with whom we work will suffer any substantial disadvantage through any disability that they might have. We will make reasonable adjustments for those with a disability in relation to job opportunities, promotion and training within the firm and the provision of services to clients.
If you believe a breach of our policy may be occurring, or if you have a complaint that you have been the victim of a breach, you should contact our Compliance Director at email@example.com
