Equal Employment

Lewis Energy continues to be an Equal Employment Opportunity employer and in order to ensure the success of our EEO policy; I want to restate Lewis Energy’s policy on this subject.

Lewis Energy’s continued success of our business growth and competitiveness depends heavily on our EEO efforts in addition to the full and effective utilization of all available talent. Our policy is to provide Equal Employment Opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin/ancestry/citizenship, age, disability, status in the United States military and/or veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information or any other protected class status. Our EEO policy applies to all areas of employment, including in part: recruitment and hiring, compensation and benefits, promotion and transfer, training and development, discipline and discharge, recreational and social activities and includes an interactive process for qualified individuals with disabilities and disabled veterans who request a reasonable accommodation.

Through management delegation and staff assignment, our Company’s EEO policy is put into practice and I personally monitor management commitment to our compliance efforts and results. Lewis Energy’s Global Director of Human Resources, Randy Dill has responsibility for the overall direction of our EEO program. Management responsibility for this program has been delegated to Lewis Energy’s Director Talent Acquisition, Michael Garcia. Questions concerning our EEO policy should be directed to Michael at 210-452-9422.

Lewis Energy is committed to providing a work environment that is free of harassment, hostility, discrimination, and/or retaliation based on sex, race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, covered veteran status, and/or any other protected class status; and every manager and employee is responsible for day to day compliance with the policy. Lewis Energy will not tolerate any form of illegal harassment, hostility, discrimination and/or retaliation in the workplace and will hold managers and employees who violate this policy accountable, including any required discipline and discharge. More specific information is provided in Lewis Energy’s EEO Policy, as well as in training materials provided for (a) supervisors and managers, and (b) new hire orientation.

If you feel that you have been harassed, discriminated, and/or retaliated against because of your sex, race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status; we encourage you to immediately contact your HR representative. Complaints alleging harassment, discrimination and/or retaliation will be investigated promptly in a confidential manner, including all required corrective action.

Finally, I am confident that by working together, we will create and maintain an environment which is free of harassment, discrimination, hostility, and/or retaliation, while encouraging the full and equal participation of all available talent, and the ongoing progress in meeting our EEO objectives will continue to add to Lewis Energy’s business growth and competitiveness.
