ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY

At McCarthy & Booker we have a Zero Tolerance Policy towards abuse of our team. We treat our customers and clients with courtesy and respect and ask for the same in return.  

We believe that all employees of McCarthy & Booker have the right to be protected and any behaviour, whether verbal or physical, which causes staff to feel uncomfortable or threatened, is not acceptable. 

In order for our team to maintain good relations with customers and clients, we ask everyone to read and take note of the following that we deem unacceptable: 

Using inappropriate language, swearing at staff, or any other type of verbal abuse.

Any physical violence towards any member of staff. 

Persistent, unrealistic demands that cause undue stress to staff will not be accepted. Requests will be met wherever possible, and explanations given when they cannot. 

Racial abuse and sexual harassment will not be tolerated. 

Causing damage to buildings or personal belongings. 

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who breaches the guidelines above. This policy applies throughout the company and to any member of staff away from the company premises in so far as it relates to the business of the company.
