Employee Relations – Respecting the Rights of Employees

KnectIQ™ is committed to equal employment opportunity. We offer a drug-free work environment to all qualified applicants without regard to race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, veteran status or any other category protected by applicable law. Equal employment opportunity includes hiring, training, promotion, transfer, demotions and termination.

Illegal Drugs and Alcohol

KnectIQ™ is committed to maintaining a drug- and alcohol-free environment for its employees that is in compliance with applicable state and federal laws. Accordingly, the unlawful or unauthorized possession, use or dispensation of controlled substances or alcohol is prohibited on KnectIQ™ premises and at KnectIQ-sponsored functions.

Open Door Policy

All supervisors and managers should maintain an “open door policy” that permits any employee to voice concerns or ask questions relating to KnectIQ’s™ business. Employees are encouraged to take such matters to their direct supervisor, but if the supervisor cannot help or is part of the problem, the employee is welcome to speak with another member of management. The Compliance Office is an additional resource for all employee complaints or questions relating to these Standards or KnectIQ’s™ compliance with governing laws and regulations. In order to assure that employees speak up promptly so that their concerns can be addressed, it is KnectIQ’s™ policy that no one will be retaliated against for raising, in good faith, what they believe to be a genuine issue or concern.

Sexual Harassment and Workplace Violence

KnectIQ™ is committed to providing its employees with an environment that encourages efficient, productive and creative work. To demonstrate this commitment, the company strictly prohibits workplace violence and sexual or other harassment of any employee by other employees, contract personnel or vendors. Violence against or harassment of employees occurring in the workplace or in other settings in which the employees may find themselves in connection with their employment is unlawful and will not be tolerated.
