Here at The Columbus Organization we believe everybody deserves an equal opportunity.

We Are An Equal Opportunity Employer

We have policies in place to make sure there is no harassment or discrimination. 

Non-Discrimination Policy

The Columbus Organization provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics. In addition to federal law requirements, The Columbus Organization complies with applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment in every location in which the company has facilities. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation and training.

The Columbus Organization expressly prohibits any form of workplace harassment based on race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, genetic information, disability, or veteran status. Improper interference with the ability of The Columbus Organization’s employees to perform their job duties may result in discipline up to and including discharge.

Harassment Prevention Policy

Columbus emphasizes that sexual harassment in the workplace, like any other form of harassment, will not be tolerated. Sexual harassment consists of unwelcome advances, requests for sexual favors, and/or other verbal, visual or physical conduct of a sexual nature where:

  1. Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment;
  2. Submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as a basis for employment decisions; or
  3. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or of creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.

Sexual harassment may include a range of subtle and not so subtle behaviors and may involve individuals of the same or different gender. It is Columbus’ policy that no manager, supervisor or other employee shall threaten or suggest, either explicitly or implicitly, that the refusal of another employee or an applicant for employment to submit to sexual advances in any form will adversely affect that person’s employment, performance evaluation ratings, wages, compensation, advancement, assigned duties, or any other term or condition of employment.

Furthermore, all employees are prohibited from offering, promising or granting preferential treatment to any employee or applicant for employment as a result of that individual’s engaging in or agreeing to engage in sexual conduct.

The following behavior is also prohibited: physical assaults of a sexual nature; other unwanted and unnecessary physical contact with another employee; unwelcome advances, propositions or sexual flirtations; subtle pressure or requests for sexual activities; verbal abuse of a sexual nature, including but not limited to inappropriate verbal comments about an individual’s body or sexual activities; the inappropriate use of sexually explicit or offensive language in discussions with or to describe an individual; sexually explicit or offensive jokes; and the display in the workplace of sexually suggestive objects, pictures, publications, or other materials.
