Equal Employment Opportunity

This company is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The company policy of equal opportunity applies to employees, job applicants, and contractors. Our company provides hiring, promotion, and benefits to all employees regardless of race, color, age, sex (including sexual orientation, pregnancy or gender identity) ethnicity or nationality, religion, disability, or medical history. Employees, job applicants, and contractors are guaranteed equal opportunities throughout hiring, training, performance reviewing, and compensation processes.

The Diversity Director is responsible for guaranteeing diversity and inclusion practices are followed. Reasonable accommodations will be provided to employees or job applicants who need them for medical or religious purposes.

Reporting Discrimination for External Job Applicants

This company conducts regular trainings for hiring supervisors to combat biases and ensure compliance of company anti-discrimination practices in the workplace. However, if a job applicant feels as though they have been discriminated against, they should contact the Diversity Director immediately.

Managers, directors and other employees are required to respond appropriately to discrimination in the workplace. The Diversity Director is required to alert the Human Resources Manager and the General Counsel of alleged discrimination against job applicants, as appropriate. Investigative action must be taken by the Diversity Director and the General Counsel immediately and the job applicant must be notified of actions taken within 72 hours. Violation of the anti-discrimination policy, including failures to investigate, failures to notify, or failures to institute corrective or preventative measures, may result in suspension or termination.

Job applicants will not be punished for reporting discrimination, participating in a discrimination investigation, or for bringing a lawsuit to oppose discrimination. This company will protect the confidentiality of job applicants who report discrimination to the greatest extent possible.

External job applicants will not be notified about the status of their complaint, provided with the results of a discrimination investigation, and informed of any corrective or preventative action that is taken.
