Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

Equal  Employment  Opportunity Policy

BURNCO is committed to providing equal employment opportunity to all applicants and employees according to all applicable equal opportunity and affirmative action laws, directives and regulations of federal, state and local governing bodies and agencies. In keeping with this commitment, BURNCO will recruit, hire, train and promote into all job levels the most qualified individuals without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, except where sex is a bona fide occupational qualification, national origin, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, membership or activity in a local commission, disability, age, sexual orientation or any other protected status under applicable federal, state, or local law.

Furthermore, BURNCO will base all of its employment decisions on job-related standards and its commitment to equal employment opportunity (EEO). BURNCO will ensure that promotion decisions are made in accordance with the principles of EEO by imposing only valid requirements for promotional opportunities. BURNCO will also ensure that all other human resource matters such as compensation, benefits, transfers, layoffs, return from layoff, company­ sponsored training, education, and social and recreational programs are administered without regard to an employee’s race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, membership or activity in a local commission, disability, age, sexual orientation or any other protected status under applicable federal, state, or local law.

The successful attainment of equal employment opportunity requires the maximum cooperation of all employees. All managers and supervisors are responsible for implementing and enforcing this Policy. In addition, all other employees are expected to perform their job responsibilities in a manner that supports equal employment opportunity for all.

Any applicant or employee who feels he/she has been treated in any way that violates this Policy should contact his/her immediate supervisor or HR.   No adverse action will be taken against any applicant or employee for self-identifying their veteran or disability status. No individual will be subjected to harassment, intimidation, threats, coercion, or discrimination for: filing a complaint; assisting or participating in an investigation, hearing or other activity; opposing any unlawful act or practice; or exercising any other rights under any law or regulation requiring equal employment opportunity.
