Non-Discrimination Statement

Equal Opportunity Statement

The HAP Foundation is committed to the principles of equal employment. We are committed to complying with all federal, state, and local laws providing equal employment opportunities, and all other employment laws and regulations. The Illinois Human Rights Act states that employees have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination and sexual harassment. It is our intent to maintain a work environment that is free of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation because of an individual's actual or perceived age (40 and older), race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, sexual orientation (including transgender status, gender identity or expression), pregnancy (including childbirth, lactation, and related medical conditions), marital status, order of protection status, citizenship status, employment status, arrest or conviction record (unless otherwise authorized by law), credit history, crime victim status, physical or mental disability, genetic information (including testing and characteristics), veteran status, uniformed servicemember status, unfavorable discharge from military service, work authorization status, or any other status protected by federal, state, or local laws.  

In addition, if you have a disability or are pregnant, recovering from childbirth, or have a medical or common condition related to pregnancy that affects your ability to perform your job, you have the right to request one or more reasonable accommodations. A reasonable accommodation means a modification to access to the work site or an adjustment to the work process or work schedule that would enable you to perform your job despite your disability or condition.  

The Foundation is dedicated to the fulfillment of this policy in regard to all aspects of employment, including but not limited to recruiting, hiring, placement, transfer, training, promotion, rates of pay, and other compensation, termination, and all other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment.  

The Foundation will conduct a prompt and thorough investigation of all allegations of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, or any violation of the Equal Employment Opportunity Policy in a confidential manner. The Foundation will take appropriate corrective action, if and where warranted. The Foundation prohibits retaliation against employees who provide information about, complain about, or assist in the investigation of any complaint of discrimination or violation of the Equal Employment Opportunity Policy.  

We are all responsible for upholding this policy. You may discuss questions regarding equal employment opportunity with your manager or any other designated member of management.
