5A. Fair employment practices
We are committed to building workplaces that promote teamwork, diversity and trust. In providing equal employment opportunities for everyone we recruit, hire, develop, promote, discipline and offer other conditions of employment without discriminating against a person’s ethnicity, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, disability as well as citizenship, marital or any other legally protected status.
