ERG is an equal employment opportunity employer. Employment decisions are based on merit and business needs, and not on race, color, citizenship status, national origin, ancestry, gender, age, religion, creed, physical or mental disability, veteran status, or any other factor protected by law. ERG complies with the law regarding reasonable accommodation for disabled employees.
It is the policy of ERG to comply with all the relevant and applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). ERG will not discriminate against any qualified employee or job applicant with respect to any terms, privileges, or conditions of employment because of a person’s physical or mental disability. ERG will also make reasonable accommodation wherever necessary for all employees or applicants with disabilities, provided that the individual is otherwise qualified to safely perform the essential duties and assignments connected with the job and provided that any accommodations made do not impose an undue hardship on ERG.
Equal employment opportunity notices are posted near employee gathering places as required by law. These notices summarize the rights of employees to equal opportunity in employment and list the names and addresses of the various government agencies that may be contacted in the event that any person believes he or she has been discriminated against. Management is primarily responsible for seeing that ERG’s equal employment opportunity policies are implemented, but all members of the staff share in the responsibility for assuring that by their personal actions, the policies are effective and apply uniformly to everyone. Any employees, including supervisors, involved in discriminatory practices will be subject to disciplinary actionsup to and including termination.
