Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion


Our Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

It is the policy of PAMED to ensure equal employment opportunity without discrimination or harassment based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, marital status, veteran status, citizenship, genetic information, possession of a General Educational Development certificate as opposed to a high school diploma, or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state or local law. This commitment applies, but is not limited, to decisions made with respect to hiring, placement, compensation, benefits, promotions, demotions, transfers, terminations, layoffs, return from layoffs, administration of benefits, and all other terms and conditions of employment. Likewise, employees are responsible for respecting the rights of their co-workers, as we must all work together to ensure continued success.
