The Firm believes in and supports a policy of nondiscrimination in all aspects of employment. The Firm is an equal opportunity employer and will not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), parental status, national origin, age, marital or veteran status, height, weight, disability, or any other protected status. Any employee with concerns about discrimination in the workplace is encouraged to bring these issues to the attention of the Firm's Director of Human Resources, Firm Counsel, or Chief Executive Officer. Employees can raise and make reports of discrimination without fear of retaliation. Discriminatory activity by any employee may result in disciplinary action of the employee, up to and including termination of employment.

State and federal law require employers to make accommodations to employees with disabilities who can be reasonably accommodated to enable them to perform the essential functions of their job. Employees with disabilities may request an accommodation of their disability by notifying the Firm in writing, to the attention of the Firm's Director of Human Resources, of the need for accommodation within 182 days of the date the employee knows or should know that an accommodation is needed.

Failure to properly notify the Firm will preclude any claim under federal, Michigan, Illinois, Nevada or California law that the Firm failed to accommodate the employee.
