NO HARASSMENT POLICY

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Ebs/Pace is committed to a work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity.  Each individual has the right to work in a professional atmosphere that promotes equal employment opportunities and prohibits discriminatory practices, including harassment.  Therefore, ebs/Pace expects that all relationships among persons in the workplace will be business-like and free of bias, prejudice and harassment. Harassment of any kind is prohibited and will not be tolerated by anyone in a working relationship with the employee.  Employees found in violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment. 

Harassment is defined as verbal or physical conduct which:

1.   Denigrates or shows hostility or aversion toward an individual because of his/her race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, gender identity, sexual orientation or any other characteristic protected by law.

2.   Has the purpose or effect of creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment;

3.   Has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance; or

4.   Otherwise adversely affects an individual’s employment opportunities.

Prohibited harassing conduct includes, but is not limited to, epithets, slurs, negative stereotyping, or threatening, intimidating or hostile acts that relate to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, gender identity, sexual orientation or any other characteristic protected by law.  Prohibited harassing conduct also includes written or graphic material that is placed on walls, bulletin boards or elsewhere on the premises or that is circulated in the workplace.

This policy also prohibits sexual harassment.  Sexual harassment is defined as:

1.   Unwelcome sexual advances;

2.   Requests for sexual favors and all other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual or otherwise offensive nature, particularly where:

a.     submission to such conduct is made explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of employment;

b.     submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as a basis for decisions affecting an individual’s employment; or

c.     such conduct has the purpose or effect of creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment;

3.   Sexually offensive jokes, innuendoes and other sexually oriented statements or behavior.

If you experience or observe any prohibited harassment, including incidents on client property, promptly report the incident to your supervisor, or the President.  This includes not only ebs/Pace employee action but supervisor/subordinate and coworkers at client locations, as well as vendors, customers or other non-employees.  If you believe it would be inappropriate to discuss the matter with your supervisor, you may bypass him/her and report it directly to the next level of supervision, or the President.  Your complaint will be investigated and kept confidential to the extent possible.  Individuals who make complaints have an obligation to assist and cooperate with the company’s investigation.  All supervisors who become aware of potential incidents of sexual harassment are required to report this information even if those incidents involve upper-level managers or individuals not in their chain of command.

If the company determines that an employee has harassed another employee, or employee of a client, appropriate remedial action will be taken against the offender, up to and including termination.

The company prohibits any form of retaliation against an employee for lodging a complaint under this policy or for assisting in the investigation of a claim of harassment.

Note:  This disclosure statement will be placed in your personnel file.

I have read and understand the policy on No Harassment.
