Equality Policy

 The Equality Act 2010 prohibits all employers, service providers and providers of education, from discriminating against, harassing or victimising individuals with protected characteristics.

These include:

The Sex Discrimination Act 1975 (updated 2008, under Gender Reassignment Regulations).

The Race Relations Act 1976

The Disability Discrimination Act 1995

The Employment Equality (Religion and Belief) Regulations 2003

The Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2003

The Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006

The Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2007

The Act offers similar levels of protection from discrimination across all the protected characteristics and all sectors, where appropriate – a process called harmonisation.

Shadow Stalkers Airsoft Team aim to conform to the Equality Act 2010, by promoting inclusion within the Team, whenever it is possible to meet the needs of disabled people. The Equality Act 2010 states that reasonable adjustments can be made for disabled people, and that it is not unlawful discrimination to treat disabled people more favourably than non-disabled people because of their disability.

Anyone found ‘purposely’ breaking any of the above Acts/Regulations will receive a written warning, and if found guilty a second time will be removed from the team forthwith.
