Declaration


It is understood and agreed that any misrepresentation by me on this application form will be sufficient cause for cancellation of this application and or termination from the company’s service if I have already been employed. If documents submitted as proof of identity proves to be false in any way the proper authorities will be informed in every case.

I give the management of Harmony the right to investigate all references and to secure additional information about me provided that it is job related. I hereby release Harmony Home Aid Services and its representatives from liability in seeking such information and all others persons, corporations or organisation for furnishing such information.

I understand that in the event of being short-listed for interview, I will be required to complete a confidential declaration in respect of the state of my physical and mental health. Also, because of the sensitive nature of the duties, I will be required to give information of any criminal convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings and any other information, which might have a bearing on my suitability of the post. I understand also that an Enhanced Disclosure will be undertaken through the Criminal Records Bureau if my application is successful.

At Harmony we regard Equal Opportunities and nondiscriminatory practice as essential factors in how we operate our business. This approach assists us to adopt good practice and act lawfully. We understand that all staff members must have a full and complete understanding of the policy as well as being kept abreast of any subsequent changes.

Discrimination in any form is wrong from a societal perspective, is illegal and can be extremely detrimental to an organization found to be in breach. We also deem it imperative that we have an integrated workforce. For these reasons we take the responsibility of ensuring that ALL levels of staff are aware of what is expected of them.

The 9 Protected Characteristics

We ensure that staff is aware of the nine protected characteristics of Age, Disability,Gender Reassignment, Race, Religion or Belief, Sex, Sexual Orientation, Marriage or Civil Partnership, Pregnancy and Maternity. We have specific training sessions provided once a year to each employee with accompanying knowledge tests at the end of the session.

In regards to each characteristic we give the employee specific scenarios pertinent to each, ensuring that they are aware of them and how to avoid ensuring compliance:

1.     Race – ensuring that opportunities are available to all and that none are excluded due to their race. Also ensures that no employee is victimized due to their race.

2.     Sex - ensuring no assumptions are made about the person’s ability to do a particular job based upon their sex. Attempts are made at eliminating the barriers to the individual.

3.     Gender reassignment – ensuring no individual is the recipient of bullying of harassment based upon their reassignment. Those other staff members are given training and information about the subject to ensure ignorance of the issue is diminished.

4.     Marriage or civil partnership – ensuring that a person’s marital/civil partnership status does not expose them to unfair treatment.

5.     Religion and belief – ensuring that all employees are educated on their religious differences, what constitutes unacceptable language and how to avoid unacceptable incidents.

6.     Sexual orientation - ensuring zero discrimination based on a person’s sexual orientation. Individuals are not passed up for promotions due to their sexual orientation.

7.     Disability – ensuring no assumptions are made about the person’s ability to do a particular job based upon a disability. Attempts are made at eliminating the barriers to the disabled individual.

8.     Pregnancy and maternity – ensuring that job offers are made and promotions carried out for these individuals in the same way as everybody else.

9.     Age – ensuring zero discrimination based on a person’s age. Individuals are not passed up for promotions for example due to being deemed too young or old.

The information we collect is stored confidentially and securely. Data legislation protects you and your data. All personal information is stored confidentially and can only be accessed by authorised persons in Human Resources. Once collected, this information can show us who is joining and leaving the company, we can see whether everyone in the Harmony is treated fairly and whether staff are given equal access to training and development opportunities. Completing this information will help us to deliver against our diversity commitments and contribute to an inclusive working environment for all colleagues. We respect an individual’s right not to disclose this information.

I understand also that an Enhanced Disclosure will be undertaken through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) if my application is successful.
