Statement of Intention
Louth Hockey Club is committed to the principles of equality of opportunity.

or any subsequent amendments or re-enactments thereof.
Direct Discrimination is defined as treating a person less favourably than others would be treated in the same circumstances
Indirect Discrimination occurs when a job requirement or condition is applied, which, whether intentional or not, has an adverse effect on one sex or racial group or marital status because fewer representatives of that group are able to comply with it, and that requirement or condition cannot be justified on grounds other than race, gender or marital status
Harassment can be described as inappropriate actions, behaviour, comments or physical contact that are objectionable or cause offence to the recipient. It may be directed towards people because of their age, sexuality, disability or some other characteristic.
Louth Hockey Club regards discrimination and harassment as outlined above as gross misconduct and any member of Louth Hockey Club who so discriminates against any other person shall be liable to appropriate disciplinary action.
Louth Hockey may take positive action or introduce special measures for a group that is currently under-represented in its membership or representative bodies.
