It is the ongoing policy and practice of Southwest Generation to provide equal opportunity in employment to all employees and applicants. No person shall be discriminated against in any condition of employment because of age 40 and over, race , color, national origin, sex , sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability , military or veteran status, genetic information or any other applicable status protected by state or local law. The policy of equal employment opportunity (EEO) shall apply to all terms, conditions, and privileges of employment, including hiring, probation, testing, training and development, promotion, transfer, compensation, benefits, educational assistance, termination, layoffs, social and recreational programs, and retirement. Southwest Generation is committed to making employment decisions based on valid requirements, without regard to age 40 and over, race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, military or veteran status, genetic information or any other applicable status protected by state or local law. Southwest Generation will analyze its personnel actions rigorously to ensure compliance with this policy.

Southwest Generation will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant. However, employees who have access to the compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants to individuals who do not otherwise have access to compensation information, unless the disclosure is (a) in response to a formal complaint or charge, (b) in furtherance of an investigation, proceeding, hearing, or action, including an investigation conducted by the employer, or (c) consistent with the contractor’s legal duty to furnish information.
