All PCAOB employees are entitled to equal opportunity and a professional work environment, free of discrimination and harassment. A workplace free of discrimination is fundamental to the employee's professional success and to the mission of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).

In its recruiting and hiring practices, and in all other terms and conditions of employment, the PCAOB complies with the letter and the spirit of all applicable laws prohibiting discrimination.

This policy applies to all PCAOB employees. In addition, the PCAOB expect that vendors, contractors, or others who do business with the PCAOB will not engage in discrimination or harassment against PCAOB personnel, and the PCAOB will take appropriate steps when those expectations are not met.
