AFFIRMATIVE ACTION POLICY STATEMENT
The objective of NewBridge Bank's Affirmative Action Plan is to ensure that all employees receive equality of opportunity limited only by each employee's desire and ability. The objective calls for a work environment free of discrimination in employment because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, genetic information, veteran status, or disability. The Bank is assuring the full realization of its stated objective through a continuous procedure of monitoring and reporting.
NewBridge Bank shall offer equal employment opportunity to all employees and applicants. We do so not only because of federal, state, and local requirements, but because it is the way we prefer to assure that no qualified person is overlooked in attaining his or her fullest potential. Our Affirmative Action Policy extends to recruiting, selection, training opportunities, transfers, promotions, salary administration, layoffs, terminations, social programs, and our business and community relations.
Each official and manager of the Bank has a copy of a personnel manual which includes a section of the Bank's AAP. The subject is also reinforced in staff meetings on a periodic basis. In general, decisions about the particular nature of an applicant's or employee's relationship with the Bank shall be the result of that person's individual qualifications and performance and will not be affected by non-relevant circumstances. We will regularly review our status and progress in promoting equal employment opportunity and expect each officer and employee of the Bank to cooperate in attaining this end.
