Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Policy

Microsoft maintains a work environment free from discrimination, one where employees are treated with dignity and respect. All employees share in the responsibility of fulfilling Microsoft's commitment to equal employment opportunity. Microsoft does not discriminate against any employee or applicant on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, national origin or ancestry, age, disability, marital status, pregnancy, protected veteran status, protected genetic information, political affiliation, or any other characteristics protected by local laws, regulations, or ordinances. We adhere to these principles in all aspects of employment, including recruitment, hiring, training, compensation, promotion, benefits, social and recreational programs, and discipline. In addition, it is the policy of Microsoft to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified employees who have protected disabilities including pregnancy-related disability to the extent required by federal law and any state law where a particular employee works.
