Non-Harassment and Discrimination Policy

Crossnore School & Children’s Home believes that all employees are entitled to work in an environment free of unlawful harassment.  Consistent with its legal and ethical obligations, Crossnore prohibits harassment or discrimination of applicants, employees, or anyone else on agency premises or agency time. It is our intent to maintain a work environment which is free of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation because of age (40 and over), race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, pregnancy (including childbirth, lactation and related medical conditions), physical or mental disability, genetic information (including testing and characteristics), veteran status, uniformed service member status, or any other status protected by federal, state, or local laws. Improper interference with the ability of Crossnore’s employees to perform their job duties may result in discipline up to and including discharge. This prohibition includes harassment or discrimination of students/family members, volunteers, community representatives or any other persons with whom personnel have contact as representatives of Crossnore School & Children’s Home.

The Board of Trustees of Crossnore School & Children’s Home adopted this policy on January 1, 2017.
