  • Attendance at relevant community job fairs sponsored by local institutions of higher education, trade schools, media, and diversity groups.

Complaint Procedure

Workplace harassment is a form of discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other federal regulations.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) defines harassment as unwelcome verbal or physical behavior that is based on race, color, sex (including pregnancy), gender/gender identity, nationality, age (40 or older), physical or mental disability, or genetic information.  This behavior is considered harassment or discrimination when the offensive conduct becomes a prerequisite to continued employment or if a reasonable person would consider the workplace intimidating, hostile, or abusive.

If any person believes he or she has been subject to harassment or discrimination, the individual should report the incident to his or her immediate supervisor.

In the event a satisfactory solution is not achieved, or if the nature of the problem is such that the individual is uncomfortable reporting it to the supervisor, the individual is encouraged to report the issue to the Diversity Officer.  All complaints will remain confidential.

K49A Media prohibits retaliation against any complainant or participant in the complaint process.

Training, Development, and Retention Efforts

K49A Media provides employees with departmental training that allows them to successfully integrate into their departments.  Employees are strongly encouraged to apply for open vacancies whenever possible and K49A Media provides training opportunities to employees, so they can develop the skills necessary to advance within the company.

Procurement/Vendor Purchasing

Vendor Requirements

Purchasing Objective
