Residential Properties Ltd. and its affiliated subsidiaries, which include Residential Properties Ltd., RPL-Referral, and RPL-Commercial (collectively, "RPL”), are dedicated professionals committed to equal opportunity and non-discrimination in all aspects of the services they provide. RPL expressly prohibits any form of discrimination or any other illegal activity under federal, state or city law (any of which is an “Unlawful Category”.) Any discrimination based on an Unlawful Category by agents or employees in the performance of their expected job duties will not be tolerated and will subject the agent or employee to appropriate disciplinary action.
This policy covers all RPL employees and agents without exception. RPL will not tolerate, condone or allow discrimination, whether engaged in by clients, employees, agents, independent contractors or other non-employees who conduct business with the Company. Even though RPL can not control clients or third parties, RPL's agents and employees will strive to comply with the law and this Policy.
RPL requires all managers and sales and leasing agents to review the laws – federal or local. Any questions or issues concerning discrimination should be addressed to RPL's management. These reports and complaints will be kept confidential to the fullest extent possible without impairing RPL's obligations to comply with the law. When necessary, RPL may employ an outside lawyer or consultant to investigate an issue or provide guidance.
RPL does not allow retaliation against an individual who makes a report of discrimination or provides information concerning such actions nor will it permit any employee or agent to do so. Retaliation is a serious violation of this policy and should be reported immediately. Any person found to have retaliated against another individual for reporting unlawful discrimination will be subject to the same disciplinary action provided for direct offenders.
