BLM Equality and Diversity Policy

Bastian Lloyd Morris Solicitor Advocates prides itself in subscribing to all aspects of Equality and Diversity. We do not wish to merely ‘tick a box’. We wish to reflect the diversity of the communities that we serve.

We treat all applicants for permanent and temporary employment equally and fairly and do not unlawfully discriminate against them. We do this by ensuring that we operate an open and fair recruitment process, using selection criteria which do not discriminate, and making decisions based on individual qualities and personal merit. Promotion within the company is made solely on merit. The diversity of our work force and senior management has always been a testament to this. Our  policies, practices and procedures have always reflected this.

All aspects of our Equality and Diversity Policy applies to our professional dealings with clients, professional colleagues, experts and others, so that we may provide an accessible service to all clients, subject, of course, to funding or other lawful constraints.

From time to time BLM is willing to provide pro bono representation in order to promote our Equality and Diversity  Policy.

Our Office Manager, in consultation with our Managing Partner and Complaints Officer, is responsible for implementing and monitoring our Equality and Diversity Policy. She undertakes an overview of this Policy periodically, in order to satisfy herself that it is in effective operation, particularly with regards to statutory, primary and delegated legislation, SRA Guidelines, LAA contract compliance and our own practice and Quality Procedures Management.

The essence of our Equality and Diversity Policy is that there should be no barriers to equal opportunities regardless of:

1. sex (including pregnancy, maternity and paternity);

2. marital or civil partnership status;

3. gender;

4. sexual orientation;

5. race or ethnicity;

6. religion or belief;

7. age;

8. caring responsibility; or

9. physical. learning or mental disability

10. language.

The relevant statutory legislation is set out below;

1. the Equality Act 2010;

2. the Employment Rights Act 1996;

3. the Human Rights Act 1998;

4. the Part-Time Workers (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2000;

5. the Fixed-Term Employees (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2000;

6. the Work and Families Act 2006;

7. the Civil Partnership Act 2004;

8. any relevant legislation with regards to the provision of professional services and the professional services of Barristers or experts whom we instruct on behalf of clients

9. Chapter 2 of the SRA Code of Conduct.

All staff are informed of this Policy as part of their Induction, periodically in the context of team meetings, and at their annual appraisals. All staff are expected to pay due regard to the provisions of this Policy, at all times.

Suspected breaches of this Policy will be treated as a disciplinary matter. Complaints about breach of this Policy should be referred to our Complaints Officer who will undertake an investigation, in accordance with our complaints procedures.

We identify equality and diversity training needs as and when appropriate, and address them as part of our overall Training and Personal Development Plans.

We provide information to the LAA and the SRA, in accordance with statutory and contractual obligations, about staff on the basis of age, race, gender, disability, religion or belief, and sexual orientation.

For the avoidance of doubt BLM does operate an Office Dress Code and all employees are required to be suitably qualified in order to fulfil their professional duties. Also our Equality and Diversity Policy does not permit so-called ‘positive discrimination’. Our Equality and Diversity Policy does apply to grievance and disciplinary processes however.

This document forms a part of BLM Equality and Diversity Training and Communication Plan.
