Dear Outreach and Placement Professional:
     This letter is to inform you that Research Foundation for SUNY at SUNY Oswego is committed to the principles of equal employment opportunity. Moreover, as a government contractor bound by Executive Order 11246, Research Foundation for SUNY at SUNY Oswego takes its affirmative action obligations very seriously. Research Foundation for SUNY at SUNY Oswego states as its Policy of Affirmative Action the following:

     

    1. It will be the policy of Research Foundation for SUNY at SUNY Oswego to recruit, hire, train, and promote persons in all job titles without  regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, veteran status, national origin, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
2. All employment decisions shall be consistent with the principle of equal employment opportunity, and only jobrelated qualifications will be required.

3. All personnel actions, such as compensation, benefits, transfers, tuition assistance, social and recreational programs, etc. will be administered without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, veteran status, national origin, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
To assure compliance with the Company's AAP, Maria Nakamura, Affirmative Action Officer, has been designated to administer and monitor the Plan and make reports to Senior Management. Members of our Human Resources Department will contact you when positions are available. We request that you refer to us all qualified candidates, including women and individuals of color.



Exhibit B
Harassment Policy

Harassment is verbal, physical or visual conduct of a sexual, racial, ethnic or other nature which, in the employee's opinion, impairs his or her ability to perform the job, or creates an offensive or hostile work environment. Harassment is contrary to basic standards of conduct between individuals.

Research Foundation for SUNY at SUNY Oswego will not condone or tolerate the harassment of its employees by their coworkers, supervisors or any individuals under our control. All employees, regardless of position or title, will be subject to severe discipline, up to and including termination of employment, should the Company determine that an employee is engaged in the unlawful harassment of another employee. The Company will promptly and thoroughly investigate the facts and circumstances of any claim of harassment.

If you feel that you are being subjected to harassment, you should report this matter directly to your supervisor immediately, or, if you would prefer to discuss the matter with someone else, report the issue to the supervisor's superior or to another manager of the Company. No one will be subject to, and the Company prohibits, any form of discipline or retaliation for reporting incidents of unlawful harassment or pursuing any such claim of harassment.
