Equal Employment Opportunity/Unlawful Harassment

Catalyst is an equal employment opportunity (EEO) employer and is dedicated to the principles of EEO in any term, condition or privilege of employment. We do not discriminate against applicants or employees on the basis of age, race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, color, religion, national origin, genetic information, medical condition, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, marital or veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable law. Unlawful harassment based on any of these protected classes is prohibited. Unlawful harassment includes verbal or physical conduct, which has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment. This policy applies to all employees including managers, supervisors, coworkers, and non-employees such as customers, clients, vendors, consultants, etc.

American Disabilities Act and Religious Accommodation

The Company will make reasonable accommodation for qualified individuals with known disabilities and employees whose work requirements interfere with a religious belief, unless doing so would result in an undue hardship to the Company or a direct threat. Employees needing such accommodation are instructed to contact their supervisor or Human Resources immediately.

Unlawful Harassment

Catalyst is committed to maintaining a positive working environment free of harassment and sensitive to the diversity of its employees. In doing so, the Company prohibits harassment because of actual or perceived age, race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, color, religion, national origin, genetic information, medical condition, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, marital or veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable law. Actions, words, jokes or comments based on an individual’s actual or perceived age (40 and over), race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, color, religion, national origin, genetic information, medical condition, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, marital or veteran status, or any other legally protected characteristic will not be tolerated. Prohibited behavior includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Written form, such as cartoons, Email, posters, drawings or photographs
  • Verbal conduct such as epithets, derogatory comments, slurs, jokes
  • Physical conduct such as assault, or blocking an individual’s movements

Catalyst prohibits retaliation against an employee for filing a complaint under this policy or for assisting in a complaint investigation. If you perceive retaliation for making a complaint or your participation in the investigation, please follow the complaint procedure outlined below. This situation will be promptly investigated.

Sexual Harassment

Because sexual harassment raises issues that are unique in comparison to other harassment, Catalyst believes it warrants separate emphasis. Catalyst strongly opposes sexual harassment and inappropriate sexual conduct. Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, when:

  • Submission to such conduct is made explicitly or implicitly a term of employment
  • Submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as the basis for decisions affecting an individual’s employment
  • Such conduct has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment

All employees are expected to conduct themselves in a professional and businesslike manner at all times. Inappropriate sexual conduct that could lead to a claim of sexual harassment is expressly prohibited by this policy. Such conduct includes, but is not limited to, sexually implicit or explicit communications whether in:

  • Written form, such as cartoons, posters, calendars, notes, letters, email
  • Verbal form, such as comments, jokes, foul or obscene language of a sexual nature, gossiping or questions about another’s sex life, or repeated unwanted requests for dates
  • Physical gestures and other nonverbal behavior, such as unwelcome touching, grabbing, fondling, kissing, massaging, and brushing up against another’s body

EEO/Harassment Complaint Procedure

Catalyst expects employees to make a timely complaint to enable the Company to promptly investigate and correct any behavior, which may be in violation of this policy. If you believe there has been a violation of the EEO policy or harassment based on the protected classes outlined above, including sexual harassment, report the incident to your supervisor or Human Resources who will promptly investigate the matter and take appropriate corrective action. Your complaint will be kept as confidential as is practicable. If you feel you cannot go to either of these individuals with your complaint, you should report the incident to the Chief Executive Officer.

If Catalyst determines that an employee’s behavior is in violation of this policy, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against the offending employee, up to and including termination of employment.

Catalyst prohibits retaliation against an employee for filing a complaint under this policy or for assisting in a complaint investigation. If you perceive retaliation for making a complaint or your participation in the investigation, report the incident to your supervisor or the Business Manager. The situation will be promptly investigated.
