An Equal Employment Opportunity Employer
Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (Sanford-Burnham) will not discriminate or allow harassment on the grounds of race, gender, color, religion, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status or any other protected category. This policy is inclusive of, but not limited to, the requirements of Federal Executive Orders 11246 and 11365, as amended, the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, or any other federal, state or local law requiring equal employment opportunity and/or affirmative action.
It is Sanford-Burnham's policy to undertake lawful Affirmative Action for minorities, women, and veterans and for persons with disabilities. The Institute will develop an Affirmative Action Program that ensures that all employees and applicants are considered in a nondiscriminatory manner with respect to all employment decisions. Sanford-Burnham will solicit the cooperation of the State Development Department, local community organizations, and regional employment agencies in our hiring practices.
Further, it is the policy of Sanford-Burnham to afford equal opportunity in all employment practices, including recruitment, selection, promotion, transfer, compensation, merit increase, layoffs, return from layoffs, demotion, separation, working conditions, benefits, company sponsored training, education, social and recreational programs without regard to race, gender, color, religion, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation or any other protected category in any area of Sanford-Burnham’s business practices.
Sanford-Burnham will make good faith efforts to ensure that this policy is implemented in all employment decisions so as to further the principles of equal opportunity. Local, state and federal laws and regulations implementing equal employment opportunity objectives shall be fully complied with, not only by meeting the letter of the law and contractual requirements, but also by carrying out the full spirit of the law.
