We are committed to providing a safe, diverse, and tolerant work environment, free of discrimination and harassment of all kinds. As an employee, you are expected to treat others with the same respect and dignity you wish for yourself. No discrimination or harassment of any employee will be tolerated.
EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY: We are committed to affirmatively provide equal employment to all qualified employees and qualified applicants without regard to race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, marital status, age, sexual orientation, legally protected disability, status in the US uniformed services, status as a disabled veteran, or on any other basis protected under applicable law.
Our policy of equal opportunity affects all employment practices including, but not limited to, recruitment, employment, assignments, training, compensation, benefits, promotions, transfers, layoffs, and termination. Employment decisions must be based solely on job-related experience or education requirements, an individual’s qualifications, and the ability to perform the duties of the specific job.
SEXUAL AND OTHER WORKPLACE HARASSMENT: We will not tolerate harassment in the workplace in any form or in any manner including, but not limited to, sexual harassment. We believe that all employees should enjoy a work environment that is free from discrimination, harassment, and intimidation. This applies to all of our employees, applicants, vendors, contractors, visitors, or guests.
Sexual harassment is behavior of a sexual nature that is not welcome by another and is personally offensive, debilitates morale, creates an intimidating, offensive, or hostile environment, or otherwise adversely affects the employment opportunities of our employees or interferes with work effectiveness. Workplace harassment is verbal or physical conduct that interferes with an employee’s work performance, creates an intimidating, offensive, or hostile environment, or adversely affects employment opportunities. This policy applies to all ICD functions and all times and places where employees are functioning in an ICD-related activity or are required by ICD to be present.
ICD will investigate claims and, where appropriate, take corrective action. Any employee who believes that he or she is the subject of harassment should promptly inform the Compliance Officer. Anyone employed by ICD who engages in harassment does so in violation of ICD policy and is subject to immediate termination for cause.
VIOLENCE IN THE WORKPLACE: The safety and security of our employees is very important. Threats or threatening behavior or acts of violence against employees, visitors, guests, or others by anyone on ICD property or while representing ICD will not be tolerated. Violations of this policy will lead not only to disciplinary actions, which may include immediate termination for cause, but also to arrest. Any employee who engages in violent behavior will be removed from the premises as quickly as safety permits and will not be allowed to return pending the outcome of an investigation
