All aspects of hiring including onboarding, pay, promotion, training access, termination, and retirement must be based on an individual's ability and willingness to do the job. Corporal punishment, mental, physical, or any form of abuse, as well as harsh, inhumane treatment of worker's and the like is unacceptable and forbidden.
