SAM, LLC will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant. However, employees who have access to the compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants to individuals who do not otherwise have access to compensation information, unless the disclosure is (a) in response to a formal complaint or charge, (b) in furtherance of an investigation, proceeding, hearing, or action, including an investigation conducted by the employer, or (c) consistent with the contractor’s legal duty to furnish information.
The Company strictly prohibits and will not tolerate discrimination against any applicant or employee with respect to any term, condition, or privilege of employment on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity, veteran status or any other protected characteristic as established by law. This policy applies to all terms, conditions and/or privileges of employment, including without limitation hiring, placement, promotion, discipline, termination, layoff, transfer, leave of absence, compensation, training, and social and recreational programs.
The Company complies with all applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended ("ADA"), and applicable state and local laws providing for non-discrimination in employment against qualified individuals with disabilities. Consistent with this policy of nondiscrimination, the Company will act in accordance with the ADA to provide reasonable accommodations to a qualified individual with a disability of which the Company has properly been made aware. Employees with a disability who believe they need a reasonable accommodation to perform the essential functions of their job should contact the Human Resources Department. On receipt of an accommodation request, management will engage in the interactive process with the employee, in accordance with the ADA, to discuss and identify the limitations resulting from the disability and possible accommodation(s).
The Company is committed to providing a work environment that is free from all forms of discrimination and conduct that can be considered harassing, coercive, or disruptive, including sexual harassment.

As a result, the Company specifically prohibits any form of harassment and/or discrimination, whether in person or via electronic media, by or toward any person doing business with or for the Company or on the Company's premises, including employees, contractors, suppliers or clients.
Harassment is defined as unwelcome verbal or physical comments or actions, requests for sexual favors, and/or visual, verbal, or physical conduct of any nature when: (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of employment; (2) submission or rejection of the conduct is used as a basis for making employment decisions; or (3) the conduct has the purpose or effect of interfering with work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment. This definition includes many forms of offensive behavior and also includes gender-based harassment against a person of the same sex as the alleged harasser.
The following is a partial list of harassment examples:
- Making unwanted sexual advances
- Offering employment benefits in exchange for sexual favors
- Making or threatening reprisals after a negative response to sexual

- Physical conduct that includes touching, assaulting, or impeding or blocking movements.
Employees who believe they have experienced or witnessed sexual or other unlawful harassment or discrimination in the workplace must report it immediately to a supervisor. If the supervisor is unavailable or it would be inappropriate to contact that supervisor, employees must immediately contact the Director of Human Resources or a member of management. Any supervisor or manager who becomes aware of possible unlawful harassment or discrimination must immediately advise the Director of Human Resources. Retaliation for reporting allegedly harassing or discriminatory conduct or other suspected violations of this policy, or for participating in an investigation of such a complaint, is prohibited.
The Company is committed to ensuring that all complaints are promptly and thoroughly investigated and that corrective action is taken as appropriate. Information learned during the investigation will be handled as confidentially as possible. All employees are expected to fully cooperate with the investigation process. Failure to cooperate or provide truthful and complete information during the investigation or found to engage in conduct prohibited by this policy, or to have filed a false report or knowingly made a false accusation under this policy may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
