Equal opportunities

Equal opportunity is a state of fairness in which job applicants are treated similarly, unhampered by artificial barriers or prejudices or preferences, except when particular distinctions can be explicitly justified. All workers within an organisation should be entitled to and have access to all of the organisations facilities at every stage of employment, including the pre-employment phase.
