No applicant or employee shall receive less favourable treatment because of disability. It is in the interest of Elgin City Football Club and those who work for it to ensure that all available human resources talent and skills are considered when employment opportunities arise.

Elgin City Football Club is committed to maintaining and managing a diverse work force.

Purpose

To ensure that Elgin City Football Club complies with the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and to ensure that disabled people falling within the definition of the Act are treated equally and fairly.

To ensure we recruit and retain the best people for Elgin City Football Club

Scope

The Disability Discrimination Policy covers all staff and job applicants. This also covers employees who become disabled during their employment. Where relevant it also covers staff employed by outside agencies working at Elgin City Football Club premises.

Public

Elgin City Football Club is committed to ensuring that disabled customers have the best possible access to the goods and services provided by the Club.

The Club recognises that not all facilities are fully accessible to disabled customers and that in several instances a substantial capital investment would be required to rectify this anomaly.

The Club will, whenever possible, seek to minimise any disadvantage. The Club will, in full consultation with Capability Scotland, continue to strive to improve access to all facilities for our disabled customers.
