In keeping with its equal employment opportunity legal requirements, Christian Heritage Academy will not discriminate against any person in employment because of legally protected classifications such as race, color, national origin or sex. Christian Heritage Academy provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, gender, national origin, age, disability, or other legally protected classifications under applicable federal, state and local legal protections. This policy applies to all terminations and conditions of employment, including hiring, placement, promotions, terminations, layoffs, leaves of absences, compensation and training. Please note that Christian Heritage Academy is legally allowed to make religion-based decisions in its employment practices in order to fulfill its religious mission. All employee positions are critical to fulfillment of this mission. Consequently, Christian Heritage Academy expects all employees to live out the Biblical standards as set forth in the Employee Handbook and otherwise as interpreted by the Christian Heritage Academy leadership. Among other things, this means that Christian Heritage Academy may take employment-related action against an employee based on his or her noncompliance with the religious beliefs, policies, and practices of Christian Heritage Academy, including employment termination. In addition, Christian Heritage Academy may refuse to hire applicants based on their religious beliefs and practices. Any decisions made by Christian Heritage Academy regarding application of its religious standards for all employees shall be final and not subject to any court or other government tribunal review, based on Christian Heritage Academy’s legally protected religious freedoms.
