It has been and will continue to be the policy of Delta Dental of Illinois to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. This policy applies to all employment decisions including, but not limited to, pay practices, benefits, disciplinary actions and terminations. The objective of the Company is to recruit, hire, train and promote into all job levels the most qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, ancestry, sexual orientation, sexual identity, veteran status, pregnancy, or any other protected classification. All such decisions are to be made by utilizing standards based on the individual qualifications as they relate to the particular job and to the furtherance of equal employment opportunity.
It is also the Company’s policy to make a reasonable accommodation to the physical and mental limitations of any employee with a disability and qualified applicants with a disability unless his/her accommodation imposes an undue hardship on the Company’s business. In determining the extent of the Company’s accommodation obligation, Delta Dental of Illinois will consider a variety of factors, the duration of any proposed accommodation, financial cost and expense, and impact on operations. Each applicant or employee is dealt with on an individual basis. Reasonable accommodations are made whenever possible and on-going efforts include revision of facilities to make them accessible. The Company makes every effort to provide suitable employment for those employees who become disabled while employed with us.
