From David Thompson, Owner of Royal Business Exchange
Equal opportunity in the workplace is one of our nation’s most cherished and hard-fought values. It gives workers, and their families, a fair shot to reach their highest dreams and aspirations. And it clears the way for all of us to contribute to the economic engine and social fabric of our nation. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) plays a critical role in protecting workers’ rights and eradicating workplace discrimination. In adherence to EEOC, I am dedicated to ensuring that we embrace equal opportunities and inclusiveness for everyone who works with us.
We must ensure that no applicant for employment or client services is denied equal opportunity because of race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, status as a parent, national origin, age, disability (physical or mental), family medical history or genetic information, political affiliation, military service, or other non-merit based factors. These protections extend to all management practices and decisions, including recruitment and hiring practices, appraisal systems, promotions, training, and career development programs.
