Astornet HR Policies
Astornet is an Equal Opportunity Employer that places a strong
value on diversity. Our business culture is one of cooperation and innovation,
with zero tolerance for illegal discriminatory or harassing behavior.
Equal Opportunity Employment
Astornet is an equal opportunity employer. Equal opportunity assures
the rights of each individual employee, and that all employees enjoy the
benefits of decisions that are free from discrimination or harassment. Astornet
does not discriminate based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin,
ancestry, age, sexual orientation, marital status, family-care status, veteran
status, physical disability, medical condition or any other basis prohibited by
federal, state or local laws.
Freedom from Discrimination in All Business Practices
All decisions with respect to recruiting, hiring and promotions will be based
solely on individual qualifications related to the requirements of the
position. Likewise, all other personnel matters such as compensation, benefits,
transfers, training and education will be administered free from any illegal
Reporting Discrimination Issues
If you believe that you have been subjected to any form of unlawful
discrimination, you should report it promptly, as detailed at the end of this
handbook in “Reporting Violations.” All of us share the responsibility of
ensuring that unlawful discrimination does not occur.
Accommodations for Physical Limitations and Disabilities
Astornet will make reasonable accommodations for the known physical limitations
or disability of an otherwise qualified individual who is an applicant or an
employee, in accordance with applicable law.
Zero Tolerance for Harassment
All employees are to be treated with respect and dignity. Illegal harassment of
any kind will not to be tolerated under any circumstance. This includes sexual
harassment and other types of harassment (such as that based on race, religion,
national origin, age, marital status, physical handicap or sexual orientation)
by a Astornet employee, contractor, vendor or customer. Actions of harassment
by an employee may lead to termination.
Reporting Harassment Issues
If you believe you have been harassed or have witnessed a co-worker being
harassed, you should report the incident promptly to your manager, your
manager’s manager, the Human Resources department or a corporate officer. There
will be no retaliation against you by management for making a complaint of
harassment. If you have witnessed or been told about another employee being
harassed and wish to report it anonymously, please see the section on
“Reporting Violations” in this handbook for information about how to do this.
Handling of Harassment Complaints
Astornet encourages you to bring any harassment complaint to Astornet first, so
that Astornet can address the problem and take prompt remedial action. When
Astornet learns of an incident of alleged illegal harassment, we will conduct a
prompt, thorough, objective and complete investigation of the complaint.
Information obtained during the investigation will be handled in a confidential
manner. No employee will be retaliated against or otherwise disciplined for
good faith reporting of an incident of harassment or for participating in an
Disciplinary Action for Harassment
At the conclusion of a harassment investigation, it will be determined if
company policy has been violated. In the case of Astornet employees, if
harassment is established, Astornet will discipline the offender. Disciplinary
action for a violation of this policy can range from verbal or written warnings
up to and including immediate termination. With regard to acts of harassment by
customers or vendors, corrective action will be taken after consultation with
the appropriate management personnel. In all cases of harassment, steps will be
taken, as necessary, to prevent any further occurrence.
