Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

Equal Employment Opportunity is an area requiring both the understanding and involvement of all Dart Container personnel. For this reason, we find it necessary to emphasize our basic equal opportunity policy for all interested parties.

An Affirmative Action Program has been, and will continue to be, an integral part of the employment policy of Dart Container Corporation. Our employment policy will provide, for applicants and employees alike, the equality of opportunity regardless of race, color, gender, age, disability, religion, national origin, covered veteran status (qualified disabled, “other protected,” recently separated, or Armed Forces service medal veterans), creed, membership in any lawful organization, or marital status and will not show partiality or grant any special favors to any employee or group of employees. It is Dart Container Corporation's policy to be an Equal Opportunity Employer, subscribing fully to the intent of Executive Order #11246, as amended, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended.

In compliance with Executive Order #11246, as amended, the Reaffirmation of Dart’s Equal Employment Opportunity Policy will be posted in key areas of the buildings.

Employment decisions will be made so as to further the principle of equal employment opportunity. Each applicant shall be considered on his/her skills and ability without regard to race, color, gender, age, disability, religion, covered veteran status (qualified disabled, “other protected,” recently separated, or Armed Forces service medal veterans), creed, membership in any lawful organization, or marital status. Dart Container Corporation does not discriminate on the basis of national origin or citizenship status as provided under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

Promotion decisions are made in accord with the principles of equal employment opportunity by imposing only valid requirements for promotional opportunities.

All personnel actions (including, but not limited to, compensation, benefits, transfers, discipline, discharge, layoffs, return from layoffs, company-sponsored training, education, tuition assistance, social and recreational programs) are administered without regard to race, color, gender, age, disability, religion, national origin, covered veteran status (qualified disabled, “other protected,” recently separated, or Armed Forces service medal veterans), creed, membership in any lawful organization, or marital status.
