Project Genesis is firmly committed to equal employment and advancement opportunities for all present employees as well as for applicants in all phases of the employment process (recruitment, hiring, assignment, conditions of employment, compensation, benefits, training, promotion, transfer, discipline and termination).  Therefore, except in cases of bona fide occupational qualification or need, Project Genesis will act without regard to race, color, religious creed, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information, past/present history of mental disability, physical disability or intellectual disability including blindness or any other characteristics protected by law, (unless it is shown by supervisory personnel that a disability prevents performance of the work involved or may result in undue hardship) in all aspects of the employment process and relationship.  This policy is based on the understanding that the applicant is able to perform the job requirements.  Employment decisions will be based on merit, qualifications and abilities.

Consistent with Project Genesis’ commitment to equal employment and non-discrimination, Project Genesis recognizes that employees who have entered into same-sex marriages are entitled to certain rights pursuant to Connecticut law.  Therefore, Project Genesis extends the applicable provisions of this Handbook to members of same-sex marriages in the same manner as opposite-sex marriages.

Employees with questions or concerns about any type of discrimination in the workplace are encouraged to bring these issues to the attention of their immediate supervisor or Human Resources.  Employees can raise concerns and make reports without fear of reprisal.  Anyone found to be engaging in any type of unlawful discrimination will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including discharge from employment.
