Community Partners is an equal opportunity employer and makes employment decisions on the basis of merit. We strive to have the best person in every job. Community Partners policy prohibits unlawful discrimination based on race, color, sex, gender identity, religion, marital status, registered domestic partner status, age, national origin or ancestry, pregnancy, veteran status, physical or mental disability, medical condition (which includes genetic information and cancer elated conditions), sexual orientation, citizenship status, or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state, or local laws. It also prohibits unlawful discrimination based on the perception that anyone has any of those characteristics or is associated with a person who has or is perceived as having any of those characteristics. Everyone has the responsibility for maintaining acceptable standards of personal behavior and for assuring that others can conduct their work assignments in a businesslike atmosphere free from discrimination.
Community Partners is committed to complying with all applicable laws providing equal employment opportunities. This commitment applies to all persons involved in Community Partners operations and prohibits unlawful discrimination by any employee of Community Partners, including supervisors and coworkers. To comply with applicable laws ensuring equal employment opportunities to qualified individuals with a disability, Community Partners will make reasonable accommodations for the known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified individual with a disability who is an applicant or an employee unless undue hardship would result.
Community Partners is committed to engaging in the interactive process to identify and, where possible, provide reasonable accommodations for disabled employees. Any employee who requires an accommodation to perform the essential functions of his or her job should contact his or her supervisor or Human Resources to request such an accommodation. The individual with the disability should specify what accommodation(s) they need to perform the job. Community Partners then will investigate to identify the barriers that interfere with the equal opportunity of the applicant or employee to perform his or her job. With the help of the employee, in an interactive process, Community Partners will identify possible accommodations, if any, that will help eliminate the limitation. For example, an employee and his or her supervisor will have conversations to find, improve, and/or change reasonable accommodations. If the accommodation is reasonable and will not impose an undue hardship, Community Partners will make the accommodation. If at some point, an accommodation needs to be changed, the employee should use the same interactive process to request a change to his or her accommodation. Any perceived incident of discrimination should be reported immediately to Human Resources. You will be asked to provide details of the incident or incidents, names of individuals involved, and names of any witnesses.
Supervisors will refer all discrimination complaints to Human Resources or a Senior Leadership Team member of Community Partners. Community Partners will immediately undertake a thorough and objective investigation of any discrimination allegations. Confidentiality will be maintained in the investigation process to the extent possible, consistent with Community Partners’ obligation to conduct a thorough investigation. If Community Partners determines that discrimination has occurred, effective remedial action will be taken commensurate with the severity of the offense. Appropriate action also will be taken to deter any future discrimination. Community Partners will not retaliate against employees for filing complaints and will not permit retaliation by employees. Any employee found to be retaliating against another employee for complaining about discrimination will be subject to discipline, up to and including termination.
