Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

Revised 02.15.2024

Davey Tree is committed to being an equal opportunity employer. Davey Tree’s policy is to offer equal opportunity to all qualified employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, pregnancy status (including childbirth, breastfeeding, and related conditions), familial status, protected genetic information, veteran status, medical condition or disability (physical or mental), political affiliation, ancestry, or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state, or local laws.

Davey Tree will not discriminate, retaliate, or take other adverse action against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant. However, employees who have access to compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants to individuals who do not otherwise have access to compensation information, unless the disclosure is (a) in response to a formal complaint or charge, (b) in furtherance of an investigation, proceeding, hearing, or action, including an investigation conducted by Davey Tree, or (c) consistent with Davey Tree’s legal duty to furnish information.

It is also Davey Tree’s policy not to discriminate because of a person’s relationship or association with a protected veteran. This includes spouses and other family members. Davey Tree will safeguard the fair and equitable treatment of protected veteran spouses and family members with regard to all employment actions and prohibit harassment of applicants and employees because of their relationship or association with a protected veteran.

This policy is applicable to recruitment, hiring, rates of pay, job assignments, promotion, training, discipline, termination, layoffs, transfer, employee benefits, and all other terms and conditions of employment. All employees are expected to comply with this EEO policy. Supervisors who are responsible for meeting business objectives are expected to cooperate fully in meeting our EEO objectives.
