Equal Employment Opportunity
OUR COMMITMENT TO EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY & HARASSMENT PREVENTION
The Alliance supports and is committed to the principles of equal employment opportunity. In order to provide equal employment and advancement opportunities to all individuals, employment and apprenticeship decisions at the Alliance are based on merit, qualifications, abilities, and other legitimate, nondiscriminatory factors. The Alliance does not discriminate in employment and apprenticeship opportunities or practices on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status, military status, veteran status, labor affiliation, domestic violence victim status, sexual orientation, genetic predisposition or carrier status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
The Alliance Board firmly believes that all qualified persons shall have equal opportunity in apprenticeship training. The Alliance is committed to providing a learning environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. The Alliance is committed to promoting careers in construction through apprenticeship training and implement programs and policies, which include the strategic outreach and positive recruitment efforts that would reasonably be expected to increase minority and women’s participation in apprenticeship.
All apprenticeship decisions shall be consistent with the principles of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity.
The Alliance strives to maintain an environment free from discrimination and harassment, where people treat each other with respect, dignity and courtesy. This policy applies to all phases of apprenticeship and related employment, including but not limited to recruitment, testing, hiring, promotion/demotion, transfer, lay-off, termination, pay, granting of benefits and training. This policy applies not only to the workplace during normal business hours, but also to all job and related instruction training sites, work-related social functions, whether on or off a company’s premises and to business-related travel.
Any incidents of discrimination or harassment of any type should be reported. Apprentices can raise concerns and make reports without fear of retaliation. Anyone found to be engaging in any type of unlawful discrimination or harassment will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment and/or enrollment in the apprenticeship program.
