The subsidiaries of The Schwan Food Company ("Schwan") are equal opportunity employers.
It is the policy of Schwan to recruit, hire, assign, promote and compensate employees on the basis of their qualifications and without regard to age, race, color, creed, national origin, gender, religion, marital status, disability or other legally protected status. This commitment to non-discrimination also extends to our customers, vendors and suppliers.
Equal Employment Opportunity Statement for Individuals with Disabilities and Protected Veterans
It is the policy of the subsidiaries of The Schwan Food Company (“Schwan”) not to discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because he or she is an individual with a disability or a protected veteran, (i.e., disabled veteran, Armed Forces service medal veteran, recently separated veteran, or other veteran who served during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized). It is also the policy of Schwan to take steps to employ and to advance in employment, all persons regardless of their status as individuals with disabilities or protected veterans, and to base all employment decisions only on valid job requirements. This policy shall apply to all employment actions, including but not limited to recruitment, hiring, upgrading, promotion, transfer, demotion, layoff, recall, termination, rates of pay or other forms of compensation and selection for training, including apprenticeship, at all levels of employment.
Employees and applicants of Schwan will not be subject to harassment on the basis of disability or status as a protected veteran. Additionally, retaliation, including intimidation, threats, or coercion, because an employee or applicant has objected to discrimination, engaged or may engage in filing a complaint, assisted in a review, investigation, or hearing or have otherwise sought to obtain their legal rights under any Federal, State, or local EEO law regarding individuals with disabilities or protected veterans is prohibited.
I am committed to the principles of Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity. I am responsible for ensuring the dissemination and implementation of equal employment opportunity and affirmative action throughout all levels of Schwan. One of my duties is to establish and maintain an internal audit and reporting system to allow for effective measurement of Schwan programs.
In furtherance of Schwan policy regarding Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity, Schwan has developed written Affirmative Action Programs which set forth the policies, practices and procedures that Schwan is committed to in order to ensure that its policy of nondiscrimination and affirmative action for qualified individuals with disabilities and qualified protected veterans is accomplished. For further information concerning an Affirmative Action Program, interested persons should contact me during normal business hours at 952-832-4434 for assistance.
