Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action
CIFT is committed to continually improving the recruitment, employment, and promotional opportunities for minorities and women. This commitment is integrated into the principles of the organization with the development of the Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action policy.
It is the official policy of CIFT to:
- Recruit, hire, train and promote into all job classifications the most qualified persons without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability or status as a veteran;
- Base decisions on employment so as to further the principles of equal opportunity;
- Make employment and promotional decisions using reasonable standards based on the individual’s qualifications as they relate to a particular job vacancy and to the advancement of equal employment opportunity;
- Ensure that all other personnel actions, such as compensation, benefits, transfers, layoffs, return from layoff, company sponsored training, education, tuition assistance, social and recreational programs will be administered without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability or status as a veteran.
This policy encompasses both the desire and the obligation of CIFT when conducting its business even when such business is not with a government agency or contractor who imposes equal opportunity clauses in its contracts.
CIFT is committed to the objectives of equal employment opportunity and expect the cooperation and participation of all employees, contractors and vendors in achieving these objectives.
