A brief description of when and why the workplace health and safety baseline was adopted (e.g. in sustainability plans and policies or in the context of other reporting obligations):

"The University of Alabama in Huntsville is committed to making employment
opportunities available to qualified applicants and employees and does not unlawfully
discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including marital or
parental status), pregnancy, sexual orientation, age, disability, citizenship, genetic information, or
status as a disabled veteran, Armed Forces service medal veteran, recently separated veteran, or
any other protected veteran (all referred to herein as “covered veterans”). All personnel actions
and programs shall be administered in accordance with this equal opportunity (EO) policy.
These actions and programs include recruitment; selection; assignment; classification;
promotion; demotion; transfer; layoff and recall; termination; determination of wages, conditions
and benefits of employment; etc. It is the intent of the University that, in all aspects of employment, individuals shall be treated without unlawful discrimination on any of the foregoing bases, and that employment decisions shall instead be premised upon a person’s ability, experience, and other job-related qualifications."
