Equal Employment Opportunity

GNA is an equal opportunity employer and makes employment decisions on the basis of merit. Company policy prohibits unlawful discrimination based on race, color, creed, sex, religion, marital status, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, sexual orientation, or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state, or local laws. GNA ensures equal employment opportunities to qualified individuals with a disability, and to the extent required by the Americans with Disabilities ACT, GNA will make a reasonable accommodation for the known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified individual with a disability who is an applicant or an employee. Likewise, GNA encourages and promotes providing diverse business enterprises (DBEs), such as women, minority, and disabled veteran-owned businesses, the maximum practicable opportunity to compete for GNA’s business.
