Hiring Practices

In-Depth Engineering’s employment objective is to select personnel who meet high standards of personality, character, education, and occupational qualifications and who can carry out our work competently; who have the capacity for growth; and who will become a dynamic part of our organization.

We realize that our fundamental strength and future growth depend directly upon the contribution made by each person within our organization, and that productivity and efficiency result from real job satisfaction and from the opportunity each person receives and accepts for his or her individual self-development.

We believe that all persons are entitled to equal employment opportunity and do not discriminate against our employees or applicants because of race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, marital status, disability, veteran status, ancestry, sexual orientation, genetic information, or any other category protected by applicable federal, state, and/or local law. Equal employment opportunity will be extended to all persons in all aspects of the employer-employee relationship, including but not limited to recruitment, hiring, training, compensation, promotion, transfer, discipline, layoff, and termination.


Hiring of Former Government Employees

In-Depth Engineering avoids conflicts of interest in connection with employing or acquiring the services of current or former government employees. This includes employing or acquiring the services of current or former military personnel and other federal government employees.

We must comply fully with all laws and regulations pertaining to employing or acquiring the services of government employees. These rules apply to contact or negotiations with current government employees to discuss their potential employment by the company or their use as consultants or contractors. These rules may restrict the roles and responsibilities that former government employees may perform on our behalf after joining the company. The laws and regulations governing the hiring and employment of former government employees can be difficult to follow; when in doubt, you should consult the ethics officer.


Suppliers, Consultants, Part-Time, and Temporary Workers

In-Depth Engineering only works with consultants and contractors who share In-Depth Engineering’s commitment to upholding the highest standards of business integrity. The actions of our consultants or contractors impact the overall reputation of In-Depth Engineering.

We will not retain a consultant or contractor that conducts business in a manner that is contrary to our company policies or procedures or duty to upholding the laws in all matters of business. For example, the company will not conduct business with consultants or contractors for the purpose of paying bribes or kickbacks, engaging in industrial espionage, obtaining the proprietary data of a third party without authority, or improperly gaining inside information or influence.

Consultants and contractors must acknowledge that they are willing to comply with the ethics code, company policies and procedures, and all applicable laws, regulations, and administrative requirements.


Equal Employment Opportunity

It is also our policy not to discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because he or she is an individual with a disability or a protected veteran, (i.e., disabled veteran, armed forces service medal veteran, recently separated veteran, or other veteran who served during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized).

It is also our policy to take affirmative action to employ and to advance in employment, all persons regardless of their status and to base all employment decisions only on valid job requirements. This policy shall apply to all employment actions, including but not limited to recruitment, hiring, upgrading, promotion, transfer, demotion, layoff, recall, termination, rates of pay or other forms of compensation, and selection for training, including apprenticeship, at all levels of employment.
