EEO Policy Statement
Herc Rentals Inc., is an equal opportunity employer and makes employment decisions on the basis of merit. Herc Rentals seeks to have the most qualified individuals in every job. Herc Rentals' policy prohibits unlawful discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, marital status, registered domestic partner status, sex, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition including genetic characteristics, sexual orientation, Veteran status, or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state, or local laws. This policy also prohibits unlawful discrimination based on the perception that anyone has any of the above characteristics, or is associated with a person who has or is perceived as having any of the above characteristics. All such discrimination is prohibited. Herc Rentals is committed to compliance with all applicable laws providing equal employment opportunities including but not limited to recruiting, hiring, training, and promoting persons in all job titles, as well as ensuring that all other personnel actions are administered, without regard to the protected characteristics outlined above. This commitment applies to all persons involved in the operations of Herc Rentals and prohibits unlawful discrimination by any employee of Herc Rentals, including supervisors and co-workers. Herc Rentals is also committed to providing an employment and business environment free of harassment, (whether physical or verbal), on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, marital status, registered domestic partner status, sex, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition including genetic characteristics, sexual orientation, Veteran status, or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state, or local laws. To comply with applicable laws ensuring equal employment opportunities to qualified individuals with a disability, Herc Rentals will make reasonable accommodations for the known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified individual with a disability who is an applicant or an employee unless undue hardship to Herc Rentals would result. All employment decisions will be based on valid job requirements or other legitimate, non-discriminatory reasons. Our employees and applicants will not be subjected to harassment, intimidation, threats, coercion, or discrimination because they have engaged in or may engage in activities such as: (1) filing a complaint; (2) assisting or participating in an investigation, compliance evaluation, hearing, or any other related activities associated with the administration of the affirmative action provisions of the laws set forth above, or any other Federal, state, or local law requiring equal opportunity; (3) opposing any act or practice made unlawful by the laws set forth above or their implementing regulations, or any other Federal, state, or local law requiring equal opportunity; or (4) exercising any other right protected by the laws set forth above or their implementing regulations. In addition, Herc Rentals has designed and implemented an audit and reporting system that will: (1) measure the effectiveness of our Affirmative Action Programs (AAP); (2) indicate any need for remedial action; (3) determine the degree to which objectives have been attained; (4) determine whether individuals with protected characteristics have had the opportunity to participate in all company-sponsored educational, training, recreational, and social activities; (5) measure our compliance with the Programs’ specific obligations; and (6) document the actions taken to perform items (1) through (5) above. If, after performing this audit, we determine that our AAPs are deficient, we will undertake necessary action to bring our Programs into compliance. All management has the responsibility for ensuring full compliance with the provisions of the above-referenced laws and other applicable directives. Responsibility for implementing and monitoring these Programs is assigned to our Chief Human Resources Officer. Our Affirmative Action Plans for Individuals with a Disability and Protected Veterans are available to applicants and employees, upon request, on regularly scheduled workdays by contacting your Human Resource Business Partner. Any applicant or employee who has a disability and needs access to this Policy Statement in a different format should contact their Human Resource Business Partner or Corporate Human Resources. In addition, employees may voluntarily self-identify as an individual with a disability or a protected veteran at any time by contacting their Human Resource Business Partner or Corporate Human Resources.
