It is the intent of Hilldrup to not only comply with all aspects of equal opportunity as defined by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination Act of 1967 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, but also to aggressively promote an atmosphere within the company that allows all employees the opportunity to succeed on their own merit without regard to age, color, disability status, ethnicity/national origin, FMLA usage, gender, genetic information, race, religion, military status or any other characteristic protected by law.
To address historical gender, race, ethnic and other employment inequalities, Hilldrup has developed an affirmative action program designed to further promote equal employment opportunity in hiring, as well as employee training and promotional opportunities. Hilldrup’s goal is to ensure that our workforce, in general, will reflect the gender, racial and ethnic profile of the labor pools in geographical area where we operate, recruit and hire.
