Equal Employment Opportunity Policy
Weiss believes that everyone is entitled to an equal employment opportunity. It is our policy to apply the same ingenuity, dedication, and effort used in solving complex management problems to the task of affirmatively providing equal opportunity for employment and advancement to all applicants and employees without regard to pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, race, color, religious creed, gender, marital status, age, national origin or ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, Vietnam-era or disabled veteran status, military service, sexual orientation, gender identity (transgender status), HIV status or any other basis protected by applicable federal or state law.
Consistent with and in support of this policy, Weiss is dedicated to the following:
- Recruiting, employing, training, and promoting persons for all job classifications without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, or handicap, except where sex, age, national origin, or handicap is a bona fide occupational qualification.
- Basing employment and promotion decisions only upon an individual's qualifications for the position being filled.
- Communicating fully to all managers and supervisors that providing equal employment opportunity is an essential part of their responsibility.
All personnel are to understand that providing equal opportunity for all is not only a requirement of the law, but also a moral obligation we are wholeheartedly committed to.
