All matters relating to employment - including recruitment and selection, remuneration, transfer, promotion and training opportunities - are decided purely on the basis of qualification, experience, merit and ability, and upon the person's willingness and determination to take on a position and make a success of it.
SMCs policy is to eliminate any direct or indirect unfair discrimination that acts as a barrier to employment and progression within SMC. Any form of unfair discrimination in the workplace will not be tolerated, including those based on gender, race, marital status, physical impairment and sexual preference.
All employees are required to conscientiously contribute to implement SMC's position regarding these matters.
Any complaints are treated seriously and with utmost confidentiality. Any complaint will be promptly investigated and the appropriate people interviewed. Should a complaint be substantiated, immediate and appropriate steps will be taken to prevent the unfair behaviour from recurring.
