We have policies and procedures in place to ensure that there is no discrimination within the work place. Our procedures are reviewed annually.  We are however required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to undertake an annual review of members of staff and to publish the resulting data. The data was collected anonymously. There was a general feeling that to request such information is in itself an intrusion and unnecessary, but on the whole agreed to undertake the survey. The request for such information caused some offence, and that the SRA were wrong to request such information as evidenced by the large number of “prefer not to say” answers.
