The County Council recognises that other forms of discrimination exist which have not been specifically dealt within this policy document (e.g. religion, dress codes, health issues, trade union activity, etc.) and commits itself to the general principle of fairness, justice and equality. It will seek to apply this principle to every area where inequality is identified.
The County Council will consult with representatives of each of the groups outlined who may be subject to discrimination or disadvantage and with trade unions, to ensure that its policies and practice reflect the true needs of the groups.
