It is the policy of Rand Whitney and its subsidiaries to employ qualified persons of the greatest ability without discrimination
against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, religion, color, sex, physical or mental disability, national origin,
age, status as a disabled veteran, a recently separated veteran, an Armed Forces service medal veteran or other protected veteran or any
other protected group status and further, to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified minorities, women, disabled
persons, disabled veterans, recently separated veterans, Armed Forces service medal veterans or other protected veterans. I wish to reaffirm
and reemphasize that this policy applies throughout the Company and each of its subsidiaries.
To implement this policy, the Company has established Affirmative Action Programs by which we undertake that:
- We will recruit, hire, train and promote qualified persons in all job titles, without regard to race, religion, color, sex, physical or mental disability, national origin, age, covered veteransâ€™ status, or any other protected group status;
- We will base decisions on employment so as to further the principle of equal employment opportunity;
- We will ensure that employment decisions are in accord with principles of equal employment opportunity by imposing only valid job requirements;
- We will ensure that all personnel actions such as compensation, benefits, transfers, promotions, layoffs, return from layoff, Company sponsored training, education, tuition assistance, social and recreational programs, will be administered without regard to race, religion, color, sex, disability, national origin, age, covered veteransâ€™ status or any other protected group status.
