We have a statutory duty to comply with a large number of government regulations on our website and as a responsible company we take these matters very seriously.
Listed below are the areas of statutory responsibility that are required to be specifically published on our website.
Privacy and GDPR (the general data protection regulation)
Waste electrical or electronic equipment directive (WEEE)
As a responsible retailer we meet the requirements place don us through this directive by offering all customers buying new electrical equipment a free take back service.
If you are buying a new electrical item we will recycle your old one for free. We offer a "take back" scheme on a like for like basis. For example, if you buy a new toaster from us you can bring your old toaster into the store, or if you have purchased online you can return it by post (you are responsible for postage costs). You have 28 days in which to return your old item back to us.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycles, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin. If we do not recycle electrical items they will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination - harming the environment, wildlife and also human health.
Further details about the WEEE directive can be found at waste electrical or electronic equipment directive (WEEE).
The Equality Act 2010 prohibits discrimination in employments or in the provision of training and education on the grounds of any of the following protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
At Housing Units we pride ourselves on offering equal opportunties to all and we do not discriminate in any way for existing employees or prospective employees wishing to embark on a career with us.
Gender pay gap reporting
Each year businesses with more than 250 employees are required to report on a number of pre-determined statistics dictated by the government and aimed at showing their gender pay gap.
This data does not measure equal pay. Equal pay relates to what women and men are paid for the same or similar jobs or work of equal value.
