Notice of Employment Nondiscrimination

At St. Teresa’s Academy, we are committed to providing an environment of mutual respect where equal employment opportunities are available to all applicants and employees without regard to age, race, sex, color, religion, national origin, pregnancy, citizenship, family status, disability status, veterans status, sexual orientation or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local law. STA believes that diversity and inclusion among our employees is critical to the success our educational institution. The Academy recruits, employs and develops the most talented people through a diverse candidate pool.

It is the intent of STA to provide equal opportunity for employment, training, promotion and transfer to all applicants and employees. Employment opportunities will be filled based on merit, competence, performance, job-related criteria, and business need. 

In conjunction with the anti-discrimination policy, STA prohibits harassment on the basis of any protected status as stated above. STA also prohibits bullying and retaliation. The school holds its employees to a high standard in personal and professional interactions. 

Employees who are disabled, or become disabled, must notify their supervisor if the conditions of the disability impair their ability to perform the essential functions of their position. If necessary, reasonable accommodation(s) will be made for employees and/or applicants with qualified disabilities to perform the essential functions of the job. 

If you have a question, concern, or complaint of discrimination or harassment, you should contact, verbally, or in writing, your immediate supervisor or Human Resources. If you are not comfortable taking the question, concern, or complaint to your supervisor, you are encouraged to report your concern to Human Resources, or the STA president without fear of retaliation. 

Any complaint of discrimination or harassment should include details of the incident(s), including dates, location(s), the names of the individual(s) involved, and the names(s) of any witness(es). Human Resources will review the complaint, maintaining confidentiality to the extent possible for an effective resolution. If administration determines that discrimination or harassment has occurred, corrective remedial action will be taken to prevent recurrence. 

Any employee found to be in violation of this policy shall be subject to the full range of corrective action, up to and including termination of employment. St. Teresa’s Academy will not retaliate against any employee for filing a complaint and will not permit retaliation by any person. 

It is an expectation that every employee take responsibility for ensuring the principles of this Equal Opportunity Employer policy are followed, and that violations experienced or observed are reported immediately to Human Resources.
