Modified 01/01/2021 12:40 AM

PRO provides equal employment opportunities to all employees and qualified applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, ancestry, sex, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, veteran, genetic information, pregnancy, marital status, creed, national guard or reserve unit obligations or other status in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws.

In addition, PRO complies with applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment.

This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including, but not limited to, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfers, leave of absence, compensation, and training.

Diversity Plan

As the means to achieve the goal of equal employment opportunity and to ensure that current practices do not have an undesired discriminatory effect, PRO will take steps to:

  • Ensure equal employment opportunity to all persons regardless of race, color, religion, ancestry, sex, genetic information, pregnancy, marital status, creed, national guard or reserve unit obligations, gender identity/expression, age, national origin, and disabilities, including but not limited to employee selection, promotion, training and development, compensation, termination, and disciplinary action.
  • Ensure that all pre-employment inquiries and qualifying factors do not disproportionately screen members of one sex and that applicants will be judged fairly on their ability to perform the job.
  • Ensure that promotion decisions are in accordance with principles of equal employment opportunity by imposing only valid requirements for promotional opportunities.
  • Ensure that no such individual be denied participation in, benefits of or be subject to discrimination under any program or activity authorized by PRO.

PRO operates in a very diverse community and purposely participates in community events and programs intended to promote diversity throughout our potential applicant pool. For instance, PRO participates in Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School’s Healthcare Careers Program, a program specifically targeted toward internships and opportunities for predominantly minority students.

The success in achieving racial neutrality in employment requires a conscious, deliberate and total commitment on the part of administrators and employees to eliminate all barriers for such minorities. The management of PRO is committed to successfully implementing these established procedures and practices to achieve the goal of equal employment opportunity for all.
