I was employed by one of the most powerful non profit organizations known domestically and internationally. Their motto is to respect and use honesty to drive their goals in assisting individuals who have mental and physical disabilities. Those who are in need of employment, training, education, and transitional support. Their core values sounds like something a preacher would say coming from a pulpit, it makes you want to be part of doing as much as you can to assist your community, however it has been my experience that these core values do not apply to the employees. Before I was terminated I questioned their dress code policy that prohibited wearing a head wrap unless their logo was on it. To me this discriminated against my cultural heritage of African decent. The attendance policy that needs to be addressed because it equates calling in sick as an occurrence which is counted against you. Not only that but you must put in paid time off in advance. How do you know if you're going to be sick in advance? Unless you have a doctor's appointment you cannot pre plan this. This to me is not respectful or illustrating dignity for one's health and the health of co workers health. Not only that there is no sick time available unless it's FMLA so you have to use accumulated paid time off. I fear for the existing and future employees who are subjected to this and possibly other policies that are not addressed by their mission statement. It is my hope that someone who has the power to hold their feet to the fire of decency for their employees as well as the community.
