AIM adopts policy against discrimination and harassment in the workplace
Associated Industries of Missouri (AIM) has adopted a more detailed policy describing the organization’s stance on discrimination and harassment.
The policy reads as follows:
“AIM encourages employers to enact policies prohibiting all discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Such policies should prohibit harassment or discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability or veteran status of employees or applicants. AIM opposes legislation that would establish new protected classes of employees under the Missouri Human Rights Act.”
“This new policy more accurately describes our position and I believe it reflects the feelings of most business owners and managers,” said Ray McCarty, president/CEO of Associated Industries of Missouri. “The best way to provide protection for all employees is for the company to have a policy of non-discrimination and one that prohibits harassment in the workplace.”
