Equal Employment Opportunity
In order to provide equal employment and advancement opportunities to all individuals, employment decisions at this Company will be based on merit, qualifications, and abilities. The Company does not discriminate in employment opportunities or practices on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, genetic information, disability, and/or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal or state law.
Any employees with questions or concerns about any type of discrimination in the workplace are encouraged to bring these issues to the attention of their direct manager, department or program manager, and/or Human Resources. Employees can raise concerns and make reports without fear of reprisal.
This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation, and training.
Commitment to Diversity
The Company is committed to creating and maintaining a workplace in which all employees have an opportunity to participate and contribute to the success of the business and are valued for their skills, experience, and unique perspectives. This commitment is embodied in Company policy and the way we do business and is an important principle of sound business management.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Reasonable Accommodation
To ensure equal employment opportunities to qualified individuals with a disability, the Company will make reasonable accommodations for the known disability of an otherwise qualified individual, unless undue hardship on the operation of the business would result.
Employees who may require a reasonable accommodation should contact their direct manager and/or Human Resources.
The Company will not, in any instance, tolerate bullying behavior. Bullying is defined as repeated inappropriate behavior, either direct or indirect, whether verbal, physical, or otherwise, conducted by one or more persons against another or others, at the place of work, and/or in the course of employment. Such behavior violates the Company’s Code of Conduct policy, which clearly states that all employees will be treated with dignity and respect.
The Company is committed to treating its employees with respect and dignity and to providing them with excellent benefits, optimum working conditions, and competitive wages. As such, the Company understands that at times employees may have concerns and suggestions for improvements. The Company encourages its employees to speak up and take advantage of the openness and transparency maintained throughout our Company. Managers and other Company officials listen to employees and take their comments seriously.
The direct personal relationship between the Company's employees and their managers ensures the best environment for achievement of individual and company goals. With this the Company believes that a third-party influence would erode its well-established and successful employee-manager relationship. A union would not benefit the Company’s employees, customers, or the Company.
