American Airlines' Work Environment Policy Overview

By Diane Cadrain Mar 1, 2001

HR Magazine, March 2003 We are committed to fostering a safe work environment—one that celebrates diversity, offers equal opportunities and where all employees feel secure, involved, valued and respected. We do not tolerate discrimination, unlawful harassment, hate-related behavior or threats of workplace violence.

Each of us must make a personal commitment to these principles every day—whenever we interact with our fellow employees and our customers.

Equal Employment Opportunity American Airlines provides equal employment opportunity to everyone without regard to age, race, sex, gender identity, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, citizenship status, disability or veteran status.

This policy is practiced in all personnel actions and conditions of employment, including but not limited to layoff, discipline, compensation, benefits and training. American Airlines maintains a workplace free from discrimination and that recognizes the individual dignity of each employee or applicant.

Employment and promotional decisions must not be based on race, sex, sexual orientation, age, religion or other protected characteristics, and people must not be treated differently because of personal characteristics that are not related to their ability to do a job.

Unlawful Harassment

American Airlines does not tolerate unlawful harassment or discrimination. The company is committed to providing a work environment for all employees free of unlawful harassment, including sexual harassment. American strictly prohibits harassment because of race, sex, gender, gender identity, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, mental or physical disability, medical condition, union or nonunion affiliation, marital status, age, sexual orientation, or any other basis protected by federal, state or local law or ordinance.
