DIVERSITY POLICY – WEED.COM

At Weed.com, we are committed to a Diversity Policy that promotes equity and nclusion. We recognize that these three elements – diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to providing the best possible products and services to our customers.
We believe that everyone should be treated with respect and dignity, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, medical condition, physical appearance, pregnancy, marital status, veteran status or any other protected characteristic.
We strive to make sure that our Diversity Policy creates a safe and welcoming workplace for all employees and customers, and we take steps to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect.
We are committed to maintaining a workplace free from discrimination, harassment and retaliation. We do not tolerate any form of discrimination, harassment or retaliation based on any protected characteristic. We will take prompt and appropriate action to investigate any complaints of discrimination, harassment or retaliation and take appropriate corrective action.
We are committed to fostering an inclusive Diversity Policy not only on a page – but in actuality where everyone feels respected and valued, regardless of their background or identity. We will continue to foster an environment of acceptance and respect, and we will strive to create a workplace that is equitable, diverse, and inclusive.
In addition to our commitment to equity and inclusion, we also understand the scientific fact that diversity improves outcomes. Studies have shown that diverse teams and organizations perform better, make more informed decisions, and are more innovative than homogeneous groups. Additionally, diversity in the workplace leads to better representation of diverse communities and customer bases, which improves customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Furthermore, on a humanitarian level, promoting diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do. Every individual should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and contribute to the success of the organization. By fostering an inclusive environment, we are creating a society where everyone has a fair chance to succeed, regardless of their background or identity.

Diversity Policy – Legal Compliance with Anti-Discrimination Laws:

We are committed to (not only) complying with all Federal and State laws and regulations in regards to diversity and inclusion (but to go beyond given the fact that the law does not catch up with new thoughts and scientific discoveries).
Specifically, this includes laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in employment, public services, public accommodations, and telecommunications. Additionally, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in programs and activities that receive Federal financial assistance.
All of these laws are enforced by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). We are also committed to adhering to labor laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which sets minimum wage and overtime pay standards, and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which provides eligible employees with unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons.
Additionally, we are committed to complying with the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), which prohibits discrimination against individuals 40 years of age or older, and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), which prohibits employers from using genetic information to make employment decisions. Finally, we are committed to upholding the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA), which prohibits wage discrimination based on sex.
As society changes and technology evolves new dilemmas and ideas will face us. It is important to keep the concept that diversity and inclusion are important all the more when something is new. In this regard, though not new – the awareness of trans and a different and modern view of gender identity is one where we also apply this some love and respect for everyone.
