Equal Employment Opportunity

It is the policy of Barron Collier Companies to provide equal opportunity in employment to all employees and applicants for employment. No person will be discriminated against in employment because of race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, disability, military status or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law. We are committed to the spirit and letter of applicable laws and regulations pertaining to equal employment opportunity in all aspects of the employer–employee relationship, conditions of employment and all areas of compensation.

While overall authority for implementing this policy is assigned to the HR Manager, an effective equal employment opportunity program cannot be achieved without support of supervisory personnel and employees at all levels. Employees who feel they are the victims of discrimination have a responsibility to immediately report this fact to their supervisor and/or the HR Manager. Complaints of discrimination will be handled and investigated promptly and in as impartial and confidential a manner as possible. Furthermore, the Company prohibits any form of retaliation against employees for bringing complaints or providing information against discrimination.
