ORIX METRO Group is an equal opportunity employer.

Policy Against Harassment
As part of its commitment to equal opportunity, the company strictly prohibits harassment of employees in the workplace based on race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, pregnancy and childbirth, sexual orientation, gender, marital status, age, physical or mental disability, medical condition, genetic characteristics, or veteran status as those terms are defined by law. Harassment includes all forms of offensive or unwelcome physical or verbal conduct based on any of these factors that unreasonably interferes with an employee’s work or creates an offensive or hostile working environment.
Sexual harassment of all types is specifically prohibited. Sexual harassment of employees in the workplace is illegal, unacceptable, and will not be tolerated. This policy applies to all employees of the Company. It shall also apply to customers, vendors, and other persons in the workplace whom the Company knows or has reason to know is violating this policy, provided the Company has sufficient control over the individual’s actions. All personnel are expected to avoid any conduct that could be construed as unlawful harassment by any employee.
Any employee, who believes he or she has been unlawfully harassed, or has any other complaint under this policy, should bring the matter to the attention of supervision Management immediately, and provide a full and accurate report of the underlying facts. Employees are urged to report first to their immediate supervisor, but this is not required if the employee feels uncomfortable in doing so, or if the employee believes his or her supervisor is violating this policy. In all cases, employees are free to report such problems directly to any officer of the Company, the Human Resources Department or the President. Employees are encouraged but not required to present their complaints in writing, and should identify any witnesses, as well as any relevant documents or other evidence.
(Please see detailed Company policy on sexual harassment.)
No employee shall be subject to any form of retaliation for reporting any violation or participating in any investigation under this policy. Employees who believe they have been retaliated against in violation of this policy may utilize the same complaint procedure described above.
All Forms of Harassment are Forbidden
This policy also applies to unlawful harassment based on any of the other illegal criteria set forth in the company’s Equal Employment Policy, including race, color, religion, national origin, age, pregnancy and childbirth, sexual orientation, gender, disability, marital status, medical condition, genetic characteristics, or veteran status as those terms are defined by law.
