Equal Employment
Opportunity Statement

Stark Excavating, Inc. (SEI) is an equal opportunity employer. SEI's objective is to obtain qualified employees consistent with position requirements and to seek, employ, promote and treat all employees and applicants for employment without discrimination in regard to sex, race, color, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, or other factors prohibited by law in any of its activities, educational/training programs, or employment policies and/or practices.

All employment practices are intended to provide that individuals be recruited, hired, assigned, advanced, compensated and retained on the basis of their qualifications, and treated equally in these and all other respects without regard to discrimination as protected not only by law but also as a guiding principle of SEI operations. Each employee is expected to cooperate to achieve this goal.

It is considered the responsibility of every supervisory employee to further the implementation of this policy and insure compliance from all staff under his/her supervision.

Supervisory staff, as well as those responsible for hiring new employees, must take all necessary action to insure discrimination does not occur with regard to employees and applicants.

The recruitment of SEI personnel is accomplished by the normally accepted methods, including working with local union halls and/or advertising in local newspapers. Referrals by present and past employees, as well as friends of the company, are also commonly used.

Responsibility for the implementation and monitoring of SEI's equal employment opportunity efforts and this policy has been assigned to our Human Resources department. As the designated company representative(s), Human Resources shall work with each department manager to assist in the education and enforcement of these responsibilities, and shall monitor the progress of these efforts. Human Resources has been given the necessary top management support and staffing to execute this assignment.
