WORKPLACE ANTI-DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT POLICY
The School is committed to providing a workplace free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation and retaliation. We value diversity and strive to foster a community that recognizes the dignity and inherent worth of every person. Accordingly, the School is committed to the principles of fairness and respect for all. This policy sets forth our commitment to maintaining a discrimination-free workplace and complying with applicable state and federal regulations, including the New York State Human Rights Law and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The School prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, military or veteran status, or any other protected characteristic as defined by applicable law. Employees must not engage in nor condone any conduct that creates a hostile or offensive work environment based on a protected characteristic. The School has zero tolerance for employees engaging in conduct that is or that may reasonably be interpreted as overtly or covertly disparaging, disrespectful, invasive, humiliating or threatening to others. Such offensive conduct includes, but is not limited to, electronically monitoring or tracking personal data of others, or any conduct or practice which violates the privacy of another employee, client, board member, business associate, or members of such individuals’ families and personal networks, as well as communications indicative of such privacy violations. Racial and ethnic slurs, sexist comments, xenophobic comments, comments or slurs discriminating against others’ appearance, sexual orientation or gender identity, discriminatory comments, profanity, abusive language, obscenities, implying or communicating information that is maliciously false, and communication designed to provoke another individual’s negative reaction are also strictly prohibited. All employees are expected to honor the School’s core values of Philotimo, Philoxenia, and Parea by helping foster a positive, supportive and respectful working environment and community at all times.
It is the policy of A. Fantis School to ensure equal employment opportunity without discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, national origin, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by law.
All employment decisions, including hiring, promotions, transfers, terminations, compensation, and benefits, are based on qualifications, performance, and other legitimate business factors without regard to any protected characteristic, as we strive to provide equal employment opportunities to all individuals. The School will provide reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with disabilities as required by law in accordance with the Reasonable Accommodation Policy.
