U.S. Security Associates has a track record of irresponsible conduct and discrimination complaints. We recommend that U.S. Security Associates adopt a comprehensive policy that will demonstrate its commitment to ending sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation in the workplace.

The essential elements include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • The appointment of an independent coordinator or ombudsperson who can take steps to monitor compliance with the policy and the law, preserve the rights of employees, and identify potential or actual problems.
  • High quality trainings for all employees as well as in-depth training for supervisory staff by outside experts.
  • Procedures for supervisor accountability including consequences for not upholding anti-discrimination and retaliation policies, and maintaining investigative records.
  • Widely distributed and posted information on employee rights and contact information for internal and external persons and entities to which employees can report complaints and learn more about their rights.
  • Creating a climate of mutual respect between supervisors and security officers by honoring their right to form a union without management interference.

We urge U.S. Security Associates to take comprehensive, swift action to end workplace discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation.
