It is the policy of Organon not to discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of their race, color, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, marital status, citizenship, ethnicity, protected veteran status, genetic information, or any other factor protected by applicable law (collectively, “Protected Characteristics”).  This policy applies to all employment actions, including but not limited to recruitment, hiring, promotions, demotions, transfers, discipline, layoff, termination, training, compensation, and benefits.  Likewise, it is the policy of Organon (a) that all personnel actions are administered without regard to any Protected Characteristic (including disability and protected veteran status) and (b) to base all employment decisions only on valid job requirements. Furthermore, the company will provide qualified applicants and employees who request an accommodation due to a disability with reasonable accommodations, as required by law.

Organon prohibits harassment based upon any Protected Characteristic – including but not limited to sexual harassment – by either employees or non-employees.  Organon also prohibits retaliation against employees and applicants for (a) filing a complaint, (b) opposing any act or practice made unlawful by any federal, state or local law requiring equal employment opportunity, (c) assisting or participating in any manner in an investigation, compliance review, hearing or any other activity related to the administration of any federal, state or local law requiring equal employment opportunity or (d) exercising any other right protected by federal, state or local law requiring equal employment opportunity.  Prohibited retaliation includes, but is not limited to, harassment, intimidation, threats, coercion, or discrimination that might dissuade someone from asserting their rights.

As Chief Executive Officer of Organon, I am committed to the principles of equal employment opportunity and affirmative action.  Organon maintains a continuing program of affirmative action and will make good-faith efforts to meet affirmative action program placement goals in accordance with applicable law.  Janine Ting Jansen, Global Lead, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging, has been appointed to take responsibility for the day-to-day implementation and monitoring of Organon’s affirmative action program (AAP).  As part of that responsibility, the Global Lead, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging, will establish and maintain an internal audit and reporting system to allow for effective measurement of Organon's AAP.

If you, as one of our employees or an applicant for employment, would like to view portions of the AAP, please contact Janine Ting Jansen during normal business hours.  If you have any other questions regarding this policy statement, please send an email to janine.jansen@organon.com.
