The [name of employer] is committed to providing equal employment opportunity for all persons regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, citizenship status (as defined under the Immigration Reform and Control Act), disability, or veterans status. [Note: Could also include protected categories that are found in state laws, such as marital status or sexual orientation.]

Equal employment opportunity extends to all aspects of the employment relationship including recruiting, interviewing, selection, hiring, transfers, promotions, training, terminations, working conditions, compensation, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment.

The [name of employer] complies with federal and state equal employment opportunity laws and strives to keep the workplace free from all forms of harassment, including sexual harassment. The commitment to a harassment free environment extends to the hiring process. The [name of employer] considers harassment of all forms to be a serious offense.

Employees or applicants who have been subjected to prohibited discrimination or harassment should immediately report the incident to their supervisors, or a human resources department representative. Complaints are investigated immediately and will be handled as confidentially as possible. The [name of employer] ensures that employees following this complaint procedure are protected against illegal retaliation.

Any reported violations of equal employment opportunity laws or this policy are investigated. Supervisors or employees found to have engaged in discriminatory conduct or harassment are subject to immediate disciplinary action, including possible termination of employment.
