Unilever US EEO/Affirmative Action Obligations and Commitments
Dear Subcontractor, Vendor, or Supplier:
This communication is being provided to you as a subcontractor, vendor, or supplier of Conopco Inc DBA Unilever. Conopco Inc DBA Unilever is a federal government contractor subject to the nondiscrimination and affirmative action compliance requirements of Executive Order 11246, as amended, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended.
As part of our efforts to comply with these laws and their implementing regulations, Conopco Inc DBA Unilever has developed and implemented equal employment opportunity and affirmative action policies and programs, which are designed to ensure that all qualified applicants and employees are treated without regard to such factors as race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, veteran status, or any other factor prohibited by law.
The implementing regulations of these laws require federal contractors to disseminate to their subcontractors, vendors, and suppliers, information about their nondiscrimination and affirmative action policies, and also to “request appropriate action” on their part to ensure full compliance throughout the subcontracting chain related to the federal contract.
Because your company is a subcontractor, vendor, or supplier of Conopco Inc DBA Unilever, we wanted to take this opportunity to inform you of our commitment to compliance with these important nondiscrimination and affirmative action requirements, and to ask for your support of, and commitment to, your company’s compliance with them as well.
