Anti- Discrimination Policy
It is the policy of LeBLANC to promote equal employment opportunity and to prohibit discrimination and harassment of applicants and employees, due to race, colour, religion, sex, including sexual harassment, sexual orientation and gender identity, national origin, disability, or age. Harassment will not be tolerated in the operations either directly or indirectly.
It is the policy of LeBLANC to maintain a working environment free from any discrimination, and to prohibit harassment of its employees and applicants, including sexual harassment. Sexual harassment is any unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favours, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature by a superior, subordinate or peer. Any employee or applicant who believes that she or he has been subject to sexual harassment should advise the offending individual that the action is not welcome and must stop. The aggrieved individual must then report such incident(s) to either her or his supervisor, the HR Administrator or the General Manager.
Any managerial or supervisory employee who receives a report of discrimination or harassment must either:
- Request a written statement from the victim; or
- Confirm the substance of such statement in writing and document the date the report was received.
Regardless of whether a written report is received from the alleged victim, managers and/or supervisors must immediately report such complaints to the HR Administrator / General Manager.
Such reports cannot be kept strictly confidential, however, information concerning allegations shall be managed discretely and communicated to others only as is necessary to investigate and take appropriate disciplinary action. There shall be no retaliation against an employee for reporting allegations of discrimination or harassment or other inappropriate behaviour. Retaliatory actions will also be subject to investigation and possible discipline.
Pursuant to relevant legislation, legal authorities may also be informed.
