Equal Employment Opportunity

CALM is an equal opportunity employer and makes employment decisions on the basis of merit. We want to have the best available persons in every job. CALM policy prohibits unlawful discrimination based on race, color, creed, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions), religion, marital status, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions), legally-protected medical condition (cancer-related), sexual orientation, or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state or local laws. All such discrimination is unlawful. CALM is committed to complying with all applicable laws providing equal employment opportunities. This commitment applies to all persons involved in the operations of CALM and prohibits unlawful discrimination by any employee of CALM, including supervisors and co-workers. To comply with applicable laws ensuring equal employment opportunities to qualified individuals with a disability, CALM 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. Any applicant or employee who requires an accommodation in order to perform the essential functions of the job should discuss their needs with their supervisor and request such an accommodation. The individual with the disability should specify what accommodation he or she needs to perform the job. CALM then will conduct an investigation to identify the barriers that make it difficult for the applicant or employee to have an equal opportunity to perform his or her job. CALM will identify possible accommodations, if any, that will help eliminate the limitation. If CALM determines that an accommodation is reasonable and will not impose an undue hardship, CALM will make an accommodation. If you believe you have been subjected to any form of unlawful discrimination, provide a written complaint to your supervisor or the Chief Executive Officer. Your complaint should be specific and should include the names of the individuals involved and the names of any witnesses. CALM will promptly undertake a thorough and objective investigation and attempt to resolve the situation. If CALM determines that unlawful 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. CALM will not retaliate against you for filing a complaint, participating in an investigation, or supporting a complaint of unlawful discrimination, and will not knowingly permit such retaliation by management employees or your co-workers. If you believe you have been subjected to such retaliation, report it immediately to your supervisor or the Chief Executive Officer.
