Corpus Legal Practitioners (CLP) is committed to providing services that embrace diversity and that promote equality in the workplace. As an employer, CLP is committed to equality and valuing diversity within its workforce.
Our goal is to ensure that these commitments, reinforced by our values, are embedded in our day-to-day working practices with all our clients, colleagues and partners.
Our Firm provides equal opportunities and does not tolerate discrimination based on grounds of gender, gender identity, marital status, sexual orientation, race, colour, nationality, religion, age, disability, HIV status, working pattern, caring responsibilities, trade union activity or political beliefs – or any other grounds.
We demonstrate our commitment by:
- promoting equality of opportunity and diversity within the communities in which we work and with all our partners and workforce;
- aiming to build a workforce that reflects our customer base, within the diverse communities in which we work, with the aim of having parity of representation across the workforce;
- encouraging recruitment from groups currently under-represented in the department and their career progression once employed;
- treating our customers, colleagues and partners fairly and with respect;
- promoting an environment free from discrimination, bullying and harassment, and tackling behaviour which breaches this;
- recognising and valuing the differences and individual contribution that people make;
- providing support and encouragement to staff to develop their careers and increase their contributions to the organisation through the enhancement of their skills and abilities; and
- building in legislative provisions and best practices in all our service delivery and employee policies and procedures, and supporting these with appropriate training and guidance;
Every person working for the Firm has a personal responsibility for implementing and promoting these principles in their day-to-day dealings with everyone – including members of the public, other staff and employers, clients and partners. Inappropriate behaviour which violates equality and diversity is not acceptable.
We measure and report on the effectiveness of our service delivery and employee policies and processes, in relation to these principles, by building performance monitoring and management information requirements into policy and product development. This information is used to inform current and future policy and to enhance business processes.
