Equal Opportunities Policy



Paul Saripo Photography is a professional photography company based in Kingston upon Hull

 The aim of this policy is to communicate the commitment of the Sole Trader to the promotion of equality of opportunity in all his professional dealings

It is my policy to provide opportunities to study, learn or work with or for me equally to all, irrespective of

  • Gender, including gender reassignment
  • Marital or civil partnership status
  • Having or not having dependants
  • Religious belief or political opinion
  • Race (including nationality, ethnic or national origins)
  • Disability
  • Sexual orientation
  • Age.

I am opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. All students, job

applicants, employees and others who study with me or work for or with me will be

treated fairly and will not be discriminated against on any of the above grounds.

Decisions about recruitment and selection, promotion, training or any other benefit

will be made objectively and without unlawful discrimination.

I recognise that the provision of equal opportunities in the workplace is not only good

management practice; it also makes sound business sense. My equal opportunities

policy will help all those who study with me or work for me to develop their full

potential and the talents and resources of such students and colleagues will be

utilised fully to maximise the efficiency of the joint work.


I will aim to encourage, value and manage diversity in all areas of my business and to be an equal opportunities employer. I will be committed to providing equality for all and will make a real effort to employ people that are representative of the local community by advertising widely, and by monitoring the ethnicity of job applicants and working to remove real or perceived barriers to under represented groups in society.


I do not accept discrimination on the grounds of gender, sex, marital status or gender re-assignment. Nor will I tolerate discrimination on the grounds of race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, age or disability.


I will not tolerate victimisation, discrimination or harassment in any form and I will make it clear any instance will be investigated and could result in dismissal.


I believe that everyone should be treated fairly and on their own merit and ability. This policy will be the ethos of my selection procedure and applies to promotion and training and to dismissal and discipline. Selection criteria and procedures will be reviewed regularly to ensure that individuals are treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities.


I will ensure that all my clients and suppliers understand my ethos and I will make it clear that fair treatment is expected for all and should be maintained.


I, Paul Saripo Photography, will be responsible for this policy and for its implementation and for investigating any instances of discrimination.
