Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY AND AFFIRMATIVE ACTION POLICY STATEMENT

It has been and will continue to be the policy of The Kraemer Company to employ and advance in employment qualified persons without discrimination against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, creed, color, religion, sex, physical or mental disability, marital status, national origin, age, ancestry, sexual orientation, arrest or conviction record (in keeping with s. 111.32), membership in the national guard, state defense force or any other reserve component, use of lawful products, pregnancy or childbirth, honesty testing, genetic testing, or status as a disabled veteran, recently separated veteran, Armed Forces Services Medal veteran, or active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran ("protected veteran"). The Company reaffirms and reemphasizes that this policy, as well as its affirmative action obligations, applies throughout the Company and has the full support of the President/CEO.

To effectuate our commitment to this policy, the Company has established Affirmative Action Programs under which we undertake that:

  • We will recruit, hire, train and promote qualified persons in all job titles, and ensure that all other personnel actions are administered without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, status as a protected veteran, or any other protected class.
  • We will ensure that all employment decisions are based on valid job requirements so as to further the principle of equal employment opportunity.
  • We will ensure that promotion decisions are in accord with principles of equal employment opportunity by imposing only valid requirements for promotional opportunities.
  • We will ensure that all personnel actions such as compensation, benefits, transfers, layoffs, return from layoff, Company-sponsored training, education, tuition assistance, social and recreational programs, will be administered without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, status as a protected veteran, or any other protected class.
  • We will take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified individuals with a disability and qualified and protected veterans at all levels of employment, including the executive level.
  • Employees and applicants shall not be subjected to harassment, intimidation, threats, coercion, or discrimination because they have engaged in or may engage in any protected activity or exercised any protected right under equal employment opportunity or affirmative action laws or regulations.

Overall responsibility for the implementation of affirmative action activities is assigned to the HR Administrator, who will audit the implementation of the Company's commitment to affirmative action and will report to the President/CEO on an annual basis on progress toward achieving the objectives of this policy.

If any employee or applicant for employment believes he or she has been discriminated against, he or she should contact Julie Hetzel at 820 Wachter Avenue, P.O Box 235, Plain, WI 53577, (608) 546-2255.
