As a leader in the legal profession, Latham ensures that lawyers are hired, trained and promoted fairly, consistent with our goals of equal opportunity and diversity in the practice of law. The firm’s Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Review Board and Diversity Leadership Committee monitor and address issues relating to achievement of the firm's EEO and diversity objectives.
As an Equal Opportunity employer, the firm prohibits discrimination against any employee or applicant for employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, or any other characteristic or condition protected by applicable law. It is also against firm policy to discriminate against any qualified disabled employee or applicant, against a disabled veteran or against a veteran of the Vietnam era.
The firm will ensure that applicants and employees are treated in all aspects of employment without unlawful discrimination because of these or any other protected characteristics. Such aspects of employment include, but are not limited to, recruitment, hiring, promotion, demotion, transfer, layoff, termination, compensation and training. Additionally, it is the policy of Latham that all employees enjoy a work environment free from all forms of unlawful harassment of a sexual or other discriminatory nature. Any conduct contrary to this policy is prohibited. The firm’s EEO Review Board provides training regarding the firm’s EEO Policies and has responsibility to assure that all personnel follow those policies.
