What is equal opportunity and workplace conduct?

Equal opportunity is the policy of making decisions about employee hiring, advancement, work opportunities and career development on the basis of an individual’s personal ability, behavior and work performance, without regard to color, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin or disability, among others. Workplace conduct concerns how employees communicate, behave, interact and treat each other. Improper workplace conduct may involve any communication or display of inappropriate material, offensive behavior, and verbal, physical and all other forms of harassment.
