Equal Opportunity Employment Policy

 

JBS International, Inc., is an equal employment opportunity employer. JBS, through responsible managers, will recruit, hire, upgrade, train, and promote in all job titles without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, age, handicap, or the fact that an individual is a disabled veteran or a veteran of the Vietnam Era, except where age and sex are essential bona fide occupational requirements, or where handicap is a bona fide occupational disqualification.

Managers will ensure that all personnel actions such as compensation, benefits, layoffs, returns from layoffs, JBS-sponsored training, educational tuition assistance, and social and recreational programs will be administered without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, sexual orientation, handicap, or the fact that an individual is a disabled veteran or a veteran of the Vietnam Era, except where age and sex are essential bona fide occupational requirements, or where handicap is a bona fide occupational disqualification.

Managers will base employment decisions on the principles of equal employment opportunity and with the intent to further the company's commitment.

Managers will take affirmative action to ensure that minority group individuals, women, veterans of the Vietnam Era, and qualified handicapped persons and disabled veterans are not underutilized but are given equal opportunity in the work force and that these employees are encouraged to aspire to promotion and are considered as promotional opportunities arise in accordance with their qualifications and abilities.

To further the principle of equal employment opportunity, JBS has developed an Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) for minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and Vietnam Era and disabled veterans. The results of this program are reviewed annually by the Human Resources Department and JBS management.

Violators of this policy may be subject to disciplinary procedures, up to and including termination of employment.

Employees will not be subjected to retaliation or disciplinary action for complaining about or reporting incidents of discrimination. JBS will investigate and attempt to resolve any complaints of discrimination. Complaints will be handled under the procedures outlined in JBS's Sexual Harassment Policy.

This policy statement is designed to strengthen and reaffirm our commitment to employ and utilize people in all job titles in accordance with their abilities. The company's position is unmistakably clear with respect to Equal Employment Opportunity for minorities, women, veterans of the Vietnam Era, and qualified handicapped persons and disabled veterans.

JBS has a commitment at all organizational levels to provide equal hiring, training, compensation, promotion, transfer, layoff, and recall benefits to all individuals, including qualified disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam Era, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, or handicap, in accordance with applicable law. The company is committed to these policies not only to the extent it may be a government contractor, but also because of our firm conviction that adherence to these principles will contribute significantly to the success of JBS.

All manager and supervisory personnel are specifically charged with ensuring, through enlightened leadership, the continued and positive support by all employees of these policies and with taking positive steps to comply with the Equal Employment Opportunity, Handicapped, and Veterans Policies, as to both spirit and intent. Those employees who have authority to promote and hire have a special responsibility to ensure the success of our commitment, and their effectiveness in this area will constitute an integral part of their performance evaluation.

Each of us must also be alert to avoid remarks, utterances, or actions that could be interpreted as racially, sexually, religiously, or ethnically based or otherwise in violation of this policy. Our fellow employees are entitled to be treated with respect. Each of us is too vital to the success and growth of our business to risk any misunderstanding in this regard. We neither condone nor tolerate such disrespect for personal dignity.
