At ABX Air, Inc., we value our people, and the quality and customer
satisfaction that results from their diversity. We are committed to the
philosophy, principle, and practice of Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO). ABX
Air is committed to proactively ensuring that all decisions related to
recruitment, hiring, selection for training, transfer, promotion, layoff, or for
other terms of employment are made fairly and without regard to race, color,
religion, gender, national origin, age, marital status, protected veteran status, military
status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, disability, or any other protected
classes mandated by federal, state or local laws.
The Director of Human Resources is ABX Air’s EEO
Officer. The EEO Officer is responsible for overseeing compliance of the
Affirmative Action Plan and Diversity Initiatives.
You have an individual responsibility to observe this
policy and to maintain a work environment that prevents any form of harassment
If you are found to have engaged in discriminatory
conduct or harassment, you are subject to immediate disciplinary action, up to
and including termination of employment.
This policy extends to all aspects of the employment
relationship including hiring, training, promotion, compensation, benefits,
transfers, working conditions, leaves of absences, layoffs, and termination.
Upon request, ABX Air will make reasonable
accommodations for qualified employees or applicants with disabilities or
for employees to participate in religious observances and practices unless
such an accommodation would cause undue hardship. The determination will be
made on a case-by-case basis. Management will consider factors such as safety,
cost, impact on operation, and resulting personnel problems when making the
determination for reasonable accommodations.
ABX Air pledges itself to a program of affirmative
action aimed at assuring true equality in employment and a work
environment free from discrimination. The Affirmative Action Plan is to
ensure that all employees receive equal opportunity limited only by each
employee’s desire and ability.
ABX Air opposes employment discrimination because such
bias undermines our commitment to provide a reward system based on merit and
ABX Air values and promotes diversity as a
strategic advantage. Diversity refers to human differences, including those
based on culture, ethnicity, religion, gender, and age.
