We agree to take affirmative action to employ, advance in employment and otherwise treat qualified individuals without discrimination in all employment practices:

Work Environment Statement - EEO/Sexual Harassment/Discrimination Policy
We have a long-standing policy of recognizing the abilities of each individual, and ensuring non-discrimination in all aspects of our business. We are committed to equal employment opportunity, and we shall continue to adhere to our policy. The Companies have developed and implemented policies and procedures to ensure that their employees are not harassed because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, gender, genetics, creed, veteran’s status, or sexual orientation.
In keeping with our policy, we will not tolerate sexual harassment by any employees.
Sexual harassment is a violation of the rules of conduct. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when:
- Submission to the conduct is made either an explicit or implicit condition of employment;
- Submission to or rejection of the conduct is used as the basis for an employment decision affecting the harassed employee; or
- The harassment substantially interferes with an employee’s work or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.
The Companies consider sexual harassment to be a major offense, which can result in the suspension or discharge of the offender.
Certification of Nonsegregated Facilities
The i+iconUSA Family of Companies, as federally assisted construction contractors, certifies that it does not maintain or provide for its employees any segregated facilities at any of its establishments, and that the Company does not permit employees to perform services at any location, under its control, where segregated facilities are maintained.
The i+iconUSA Family of Companies is committed to the provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Executive Order No. 11246, and all other laws or regulations relating to equal employment opportunity.
The Compliance/EEO Officer will handle all complaints that allege discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, gender, genetics, creed, veteran’s status or sexual orientation. Anyone who believes he or she has been discriminated against should report this fact promptly.
If anyone has any questions or comments in regard to this matter, he/she is encouraged to share them, in writing, with management or contact the Compliance/EEO Officer or President, whose contact information is posted on the bulletin boards in all offices and at all jobsites.
At any time an employee may bypass the above procedure and contact the Compliance/EEO Officer or President regarding matters of discrimination.
Further Appeal Steps:
In the event the complaint has not been satisfactorily resolved via the aforementioned appeal procedures, and the employee feels further action is warranted, refer to the federal and state posters, both of which are posted in all offices and at all jobsites.
