Any such discrimination or harassment is abhorrent, insupportable, illegal, and will not be tolerated.
YarCom Inc. will provide reasonable accommodations (changes to the way things are normally done in our workplace) to applicants and employees who need them for medical or religious reasons, as required by law. However, any religious reason must not unduly burden any other applicant or other employee who does not practice, recognize, or support a religion.
Our employees will not be punished for reporting discrimination, participating in a discrimination investigation or lawsuit, or opposing discrimination. We will protect the confidentiality of employees who report discrimination or participate in a discrimination investigation, to the greatest possible extent. We require managers and other employees with human resources responsibilities to respond appropriately to discrimination or to report it to individuals who are authorized to respond. We will provide for prompt, thorough and impartial investigation of complaints and provide for prompt and effective corrective and preventative action when necessary. We will notify employees who file internal complaints about the status of their complaint, the results of the investigation, and any corrective and preventative action taken.
