This Code of Basic Working Conditions and Human Rights represents the commitment of AIL to fundamental standards that make AIL a good place to work. Our employees are AIL’s most vital assets. The individual and collective contributions of AIL people at all levels are essential to the success of the company. In recognition of this, AIL has developed policies and practices designed to assure that our employees enjoy the protections afforded by the concepts set forth in this Code.
Non-Discrimination and Harassment
It is the policy of AIL to attract and retain the best qualified people available without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, or veteran status. Our nondiscrimination policy applies to applicants as well as employees and covers all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, transfers, promotions, terminations, compensation and benefits. Discrimination or harassment based on any of the above factors is prohibited, as is retaliation against a person who has made a complaint or given information regarding possible violations of this policy.
Freedom of Association
We recognize and respect employee rights to join or not join any lawful organization of their own choosing. We are committed to complying with laws pertaining to freedom of association, privacy and collective bargaining.
Environment, Health and Safety
We are committed to providing employees with a safe and healthful workplace, protecting the environment wherever we conduct business and striving for excellence in safety, health and environment stewardship.
Work Environment and Compensation
We are committed to promoting a work environment that fosters communication, productivity, creativity, teamwork, and employee engagement. As a national, we seek to provide employees with compensation and benefits that are fair and equitable for the type of work and geographic location (local market) where the work is being performed, and competitive with other companies.
Hours of Work and Work Scheduling
Each AIL organization establishes work shifts and schedules as appropriate to meet business needs and to comply with applicable laws and/or collective bargaining agreements.
