DIVERSITY, EQUAL OPPORTUNITY AND ENVIRONMENT______
   Diversity
   At [COMPANY NAME], all employees are respected and valued. Our commitment to
   diversity fosters a culture that appreciates the differences and similarities in each individual
   – their personal attributes, values and their work and life experiences. Our goal at
   [COMPANY NAME] is to be the employer of choice.

   Diversity is about celebrating the contributions of each individual. As a [COMPANY NAME]
   employee, we hope that you will join us in practicing the following principles to achieve our
   diversity mission.

   Equal Opportunity
   [COMPANY NAME] is committed to a policy of equal employment opportunity for all of its
   employees. This Equal Employment Opportunity Policy (“Policy”) shall apply to each of its
   domestic and foreign subsidiaries and affiliated companies (referred to collectively in this
   Policy as the “Company”). All Company personnel (including hourly, salaried, supervisory,
   managerial and executive, regardless of title or position) shall adhere to the principles of this
   Policy in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations
   governing fair employment.

   Company employment opportunities shall be open to all qualified applicants. Employment
   decisions and actions shall be made solely on the basis of individual merit and achievement,
   job performance, training, experience and qualifications – without regard to sex, race, color,
   national origin, ancestry, age, religion, veteran status, disability, perceived disability, sexual
   orientation, union affiliation, or any other status or classification protected by law. This
   Policy applies to all employees – including hourly, salaried, supervisory, managerial and
   executive, regardless of title or position, and to all employment policies, practices, decisions
   and actions concerning the terms and conditions of employment at [COMPANY NAME]
   companies – including recruitment, interviewing, hiring, job/shift assignment, training and
   development, pay, benefits, promotion, transfer, discipline, demotion, layoff, and
   termination.

   Any employee who believes he/she has been discriminated against in our workplace is
   expected to report or make a complaint about the matter immediately to one of the
   following in his/her company’s [DEPARTMENT] or [JOB TITLE] (where applicable); or Vice
   President of Human Resources. If the employee or individual is uncomfortable reporting the
   conduct to the Human Resources Department, he/she may report the matter to any member
   of senior management (Vice President and above) of the company at which he/she is



POLICY & PROCEDURE HANDBOOK                   7                     [COMPANY NAME/DIVISION NAME]

   employed. An employee who believes that he/she is being discriminated against or harassed
   may also but is not obligated to notify the offender that his/her behavior is unwelcome and
   should stop, although such a confrontation is not always appropriate or advisable.

   All Supervisors and Managers are required to immediately report any complaint (formal or
   informal) he/she receives of discrimination, or any such incidents the Supervisor/Manager
   witnesses, to the [DEPARTMENT] [JOB TITLE].

   The Company shall promptly investigate all reported incidents which may be a violation of
   this policy. The Company will keep reported complaints and related investigations
   confidential to the maximum extent possible and appropriate. Employees who submit
   discrimination, harassment or retaliation complaints are urged to themselves maintain the
   confidentiality of such matters. The Company will be the sole and final decision maker as to
   whether the conduct complained of violates this Policy. Any employee found to have
   engaged in unlawful discrimination will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action, up to
   and including termination of employment. The Company will advise the complainant
   (employee who submitted the complaint) of the conclusion and results of the investigation,
   to the extent appropriate to any remedial or corrective action and any other information
   that the Company deems relevant.

   The Company prohibits any form of retaliation against an employee who brings a complaint
   of discrimination, or who cooperates in the Company’s investigation of such a complaint.

   If an investigation results in a finding that the complaining employee falsely accused another
   of discrimination knowingly or in a malicious manner, the complainant will be subject to
   appropriate sanctions, up to and including termination of employment.

   Employees who have questions or concerns about the Equal Employment Opportunity Policy
   should address them to their Supervisors or Human Resources Department.

   Persons with Disabilities
   [COMPANY NAME] is committed to comply with all legal requirements prohibiting
   discrimination in the employment of and provision of services to persons who have
   disabilities. This policy of non-discrimination against individuals with disabilities (“Policy”)
   shall apply to each of its domestic and foreign subsidiaries and affiliated companies (referred
   to collectively in this Policy as the “Company”). All Company personnel (including hourly,
   salaried, supervisory, managerial and executive, regardless of title or position) shall adhere
   to the principles of this Policy in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws,
   rules and regulations governing fair employment of individuals with disabilities, including the
   Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”).



POLICY & PROCEDURE HANDBOOK                   8                     [COMPANY NAME/DIVISION NAME]
Revision Date ____ /_____/ ______
   Consistent with governing laws, the Company shall not discriminate against, harass or
   retaliate against a qualified individual with a disability in regard to job application
   procedures, hiring, advancement, discharge, compensation, job training and development,
   and any other terms, conditions and privileges of employment. An individual with a
   disability who otherwise meets the qualifications of the position that he/she seeks or holds is
   deemed qualified if he/she can perform the essential functions of the job with or without
   reasonable accommodation.

   In determining what constitutes a disability, the Company follows the definitions and
   guidance provided by the ADA and other relevant rules and regulations. Thus, the Company
   regards an individual with a disability as a person who actually and currently has a physical or
   mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of the
   individual; has a record of such an impairment; is regarded as having such an impairment; or
   has a known association or relationship with a disabled person.

   The Company will make reasonable accommodation to the known physical or mental
   limitation(s) of an otherwise qualified applicant or employee with a covered disability where
   such accommodation is necessary to and will enable the employee to perform the essential
   functions of the job at issue, unless a proposed accommodation would impose an undue
   hardship on the operation of the Company’s business.

   An applicant or employee who wishes to seek accommodation for a disability should submit
   such a request to Company management and/or the Human Resources Department. In
   general, a reasonable accommodation refers to changes in a job or work environment that
   will permit the qualified applicant or employee with a disability to perform the essential
   functions of the job at issue. Because of the complexity of applicable employment laws and
   regulations, all Supervisors and Managers who receive disability accommodation requests,
   whether formal or informal, must consult with the Human Resources Department in
   considering such requests.

   Where appropriate, the Company will engage in an interactive process with the requesting
   employee about potential reasonable accommodation measures suitable for the job
   circumstances, and where necessary, the Company will seek appropriate medical
   examination and consultation. The requesting employee has a duty to cooperate with and to
   supply all essential and relevant information to the Company in the interactive process. The
   Company reserves the ultimate discretion to determine the most appropriate
   accommodation it can provide to the requesting employee without undue business hardship.

   Employees who have questions or concerns about this Policy of Non-discrimination Against
   Persons with Disabilities should address them to their Supervisors or Human Resources
   Department.

   Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation
   [COMPANY NAME] is committed to a lawful and harmonious work environment that fosters
   respect for the humanity and dignity of all persons. [COMPANY NAME] therefore prohibits
   workplace discrimination, harassment or retaliation based on any classification or condition
   that is protected by law. This Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation
   ("Policy") shall apply to each of its domestic and foreign subsidiaries and affiliated companies
   (referred to collectively in this Policy as the "Company"), and all Company personnel
   (including hourly, salaried, Supervisory, managerial and executive regardless of title or
   position) shall adhere to the principles of this Policy in compliance with all applicable federal,
   state and local laws, rules and regulations.

   Employees shall not subject other employees, company guests, customers, or vendors, or
   their employees or representatives, to any form of discrimination or harassment based on
   sex, race, color, national origin, ancestry, age, religion, veteran status, disability, perceived
   disability, sexual orientation, union affiliation, or any other status or classification protected
   by law. All employees are required at all times to exhibit respect, professionalism and
   reasonable judgment in their communications with and conduct toward all other persons in
   our workplace.

   Employees likewise shall not retaliate against another employee or individual based on
   his/her good faith exercise of the legal right to complain through established methods about
   discrimination or harassment, or an employee's cooperation in the investigation of a
   complaint of discrimination or harassment.

   The principles underlying this Policy against discrimination, harassment and retaliation are
   explained more fully below.

   Harassment: Harassment based on a person's sex, race, color, national origin, ancestry, age,
   religion, veteran status, disability, perceived disability, sexual orientation, union affiliation, or
   any other status, classification or condition protected by law is an unlawful form of
   discrimination that will not be tolerated. Harassment is any unwelcome or unsolicited verbal
   or written statement or physical act that ridicules, disparages, or shows hostility toward an
   individual because he/she is a member of a group protected by law, or he/she has a
   characteristic protected by law. When repeated, harassment can create an intimidating,
   hostile, offensive or abusive working environment; can unreasonably interfere with an
   employee's job performance; or can unreasonably interfere with employee job
   opportunities.

   Discriminatory harassment which degrades or shows hostility toward an individual or group
   because of a protected status or condition may consist of, but is not limited to:

              verbal conduct [such as derogatory remarks, insults or slurs, degrading nicknames,

               harm];

              non-verbal or physical conduct [such as the display, circulation or use of derogatory
               notes, letters or other written documents, pictures, cartoons, posters, objects, e-

   Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment is another unlawful form of discrimination. Any form
   of sexual harassment of employees or other persons in our workplace, whether between
   members of the same gender and/or different genders, is unacceptable conduct that will not
   be tolerated.

   Sexual harassment is unwelcome sexual conduct, whether verbal, non-verbal or physical
   conduct - such as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other conduct
   of a sexual nature - where: 1) submission to such conduct is made in an expressed or implied
   term or condition of employment; 2) submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as
   the basis for employment decisions; or 3) such repeated conduct has the purpose or effect of
   substantially interfering with an individual's employment, or creating an intimidating, hostile
   or offensive working environment.

   No employee shall engage in sexual harassment in our workplace. No employee shall
   threaten or insinuate, either explicitly or implicitly, that an applicant's or other employee's
   refusal to submit to sexual advances will adversely affect the latter's employment, work
   status, assigned duties, shift, performance evaluation, pay, advancement or any other
   condition of employment or career development. No employee shall, by unwelcome sexual
   conduct, create a hostile work environment for any employee.

   Sexual harassment may include, but is not limited to:

              quid pro quo harassment [offering employment benefits (such as favorable
               assignments, performance evaluations, promotions, pay raises, bonuses, etc.) in
               exchange for sexual favors; or denying or threatening to deny employment benefits
               for rejecting sexual advances or propositions];
              unwelcome verbal conduct [requests for dates; sexual flirtations; sexual jokes;
               offensive or lewd sexual remarks, suggestions, insults or threats; comments about
               an individual's appearance, body or sexual habits; discussing sexual activity or
               experiences; or sexually suggestive remarks or innuendo];

               massaging or brushing against a person's body; blocking a person's movement;
               physical assault or coercive sexual activity].

   Retaliation: It is unlawful for any employee to retaliate against another employee because
   he/she has submitted through established procedures a good faith internal or external
   complaint against discrimination, harassment or sexual harassment, or has cooperated in
   good faith in an investigation of such a complaint. Employees are prohibited from engaging
   in any behavior that constitutes retaliation, as punishment of another employee for the
   above-stated reasons or as a deterrent to an employee from complaining about
   discrimination or any form of harassment.

   Prohibited retaliation may take many forms, including but not limited to: unwarranted
   discipline or job termination; adverse shift or schedule changes; change in job duties; job
   transfers; demotions; ridicule of the employee; threats; pay reductions; or interference with
   employee benefits.

   Complaint Procedure
   Any employee or other individual, regardless of position, who believes that he/she has been
   subjected to discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment or retaliation, or who has
   witnessed another employee or person in the workplace being subjected to such prohibited
   conduct, is expected to report the matter to the following persons in the Human Resources
   Department: Employee Relations; Human Resource Department(where applicable) or the
   Vice President of Human Resources. If the employee or individual is uncomfortable reporting
   the conduct to the Human Resources Department, he/she may report the matter to any
   member of management or senior management of the company at which he/she is
   employed. An employee who believes that he/she is being discriminated against or harassed
   may also but is not obligated to notify the offender that his/her behavior is unwelcome and
   should stop, although such a confrontation is not always appropriate or advisable.

   All Supervisors and Managers are required to report immediately any complaint (formal or
   informal) he/she receives of discrimination, harassment or retaliation, or any such incidents
   the Supervisor/Manager witnesses, to their [DEPARTMENT] [JOB TITLE].

   The [DEPARTMENT] [JOB TITLE], or another individual or entity designated by it, shall
   promptly investigate a reported claim of discrimination, harassment and/or retaliation. The
   investigation may include meeting with the individuals involved, including any witnesses or
   other persons who may have relevant information. The Human Resources Department and

   designated investigators will attempt to maintain the confidentiality of the complaint and
   investigation to the greatest extent possible and appropriate, but cannot guarantee absolute
   confidentiality. Employees who submit discrimination, harassment or retaliation complaints
   are urged to themselves maintain the confidentiality of such matters.

   The Company will be the sole and final decision maker as to whether the conduct
   complained of violates this Policy. If an investigation confirms that an employee has
   committed discrimination, harassment or retaliation, the Company will take corrective
   action, including the imposition of appropriate discipline, up to and including immediate
   termination of the offending employee(s).

   The Company will advise the complainant (employee who submitted the complaint) of the
   conclusion and results of the investigation, to the extent appropriate to any remedial or
   corrective action, and any other information that the Company deems relevant.

   The Company prohibits any form of retaliation against an employee who brings a complaint
   of discrimination, harassment or retaliation, or who cooperates in the Company's
   investigation of such a complaint. If after the conclusion of a complaint matter, the
   complainant or anyone involved in the matter believes that he/she has been retaliated
   against as a result of the complaint or investigation, the employee or individual should
   immediately report the concern to the Human Resources Department.

   If an investigation results in a finding that the complainant falsely accused another person of
   discrimination, harassment or retaliation knowingly or in a malicious manner, the
   complainant will be subject to appropriate sanctions, up to and including termination of
   employment.

   Employees who have questions or concerns about this Discrimination, Harassment and
   Retaliation Policy should address them to their Supervisors or Human Resources
   Department.

   Position Classifications
   This policy describes the various classifications of positions in terms of employment
   designation (exempt or non exempt) and employee definition (full-time, part-time, term
   appointment, contract, temporary, and on-call). This policy addresses staff employees, only.
   For information on independent contractors refer to [COMPANY NAME] Corporate Sourcing
   Solutions and reference “Master Staffing Service Agreement – Staffing”

   2. Employee Fair Labor Standards Act Designation

   The Fair Labor Standards Act, as amended, classifies employee positions as either "exempt"
   or "non exempt." The classification of a position determines how an employee may be paid,
   among other things, for hours worked in excess of forty (40) hours per week and whether or
   not they are subject to the minimum wage and overtime provisions of the Fair Labor
   Standards Act. The [COMPANY NAME] Corporate Human Resources Department determines
   which positions will be exempt or non exempt.

          2.1. Exempt Employee

          Exempt employees are salaried employees and are paid on bi-weekly payroll and are
          exempt from the minimum wage and overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards
          Act. Exempt employee positions include such positions as directors, managers, and
          professional staff, such as engineers, and attorneys. This list is for illustrative purposes
          only, and is not meant to be all inclusive. See your Human Resource department for
          additional information.

          2.2. Non Exempt Employee

          Non exempt employees are employees paid on an hourly basis and are subject to the
          minimum wage and overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Non exempt
          staff employees are paid on the bi-weekly payroll and hours worked are reported on a
          time clock or time sheet. They are entitled to premium compensation for overtime
          work. Non exempt employee positions include such positions as secretarial, clerical,
          maintenance, support and service workers. This list is for illustrative purposes only, and
          is not meant to be all inclusive. See your Human Resource department for additional
          information.

   3. Employee Appointment Status Distinction

          3.1. Regular Full-Time Employee

          A regular full-time employee is hired for an indefinite period of time and is normally
          scheduled to work forty (40) hours per week. Appointment is continuous, subject to
          satisfactory performance and availability of funding.

          3.2. Regular Part-Time Employee

          A regular part-time employee is hired for an indefinite period of time and is scheduled
          to work less than forty (40) hours per week. Employees in this category are classified
          either as three-quarter time (3/4), normally scheduled to work 30-39 hours per week;
          half-time (1/2), normally scheduled to work 20-29 hours per week; or less than half-
          time, normally scheduled to work 1-19 hours per week. Appointment is continuous,
          subject to satisfactory performance and availability of funding.

          3.3. Term Appointment Employee

          A term appointment employee is hired (full-time or part-time) into a position that is
          designated to run for a defined period of time. This may happen for various reasons;
          such as, the position is funded from non-recurring sources (e.g. contracts and grants) or
          the position is needed to complete a special project. Term employees are normally hired
          for periods greater than six (6) months and less than three (3) years.

          Employees hired for a term appointment will be separated from the [COMPANY NAME]
          [DEPARTMENT/DIVISION NAME] as of the specified date unless the supervisor notifies
          the employee that the appointment will be extended. For the specified period of
          appointment, term employees are entitled to all other rights and privileges as regular
          status employees, except the right to grieve separation at the end of the appointment.
          Term appointment employees are not placed on layoff status at the end of the
          appointment. See your Human Resource department for additional information.

          3.4. Contract Employee

          Contract employees are hired into certain senior positions designated by
          [DEPARTMENT/DIVISION NAME] Management to serve for a specific period of time. The
          responsibility associated with the position is judged to be such that [COMPANY NAME]
          must reserve the right to renew or not renew the contract of the incumbent in the
          position when such contract expires. Contracts are normally written for one (1) year
          terms. Except for [COMPANY NAME]’s right either to renew or not renew an
          vendors/suppliers/consultants contract, and except for matters specifically set forth in

          NAME] “Master Staffing Service Agreement”.

           3.5. Temporary Employee

          A temporary employee is hired to work a reasonably predictable schedule, full-time or
          part-time, for a period not to exceed six (6) months. Temporary positions are normally
          not renewable; however, extensions may be granted with the approval by
          [DEPARTMENT/DIVISION NAME] Senior Management, and the Human Resources
          Department. Individuals hired on six (6) month professional service appointments are
          classified as temporary employees. See your Human Resource department for additional
          information.

          3.6. On-Call Employee

          An on-call employee is employed on an intermittent basis to work special events, during
          peak work periods, to fill in for an absent employee, and in other similar circumstances.
          An on-call position may be renewed by submitting a request to [COMPANY NAME]
          [DEPARTMENT/DIVISION NAME] Management, and the Human Resources Department
          for approval.

          4.1. Eligible Positions

          Regular employees scheduled to work thirty (30) or more hours per week are eligible to

EMPLOYMENT POLICY AND SCHEDULING ________________

   Introductory Period
   The first 90 days of employment with [COMPANY NAME] is called an “introductory period.”
   During this introductory period, our organization and your Manager will carefully consider
   your work abilities and performance. This introductory period also allows you to consider
   whether [COMPANY NAME] [DEPARTMENT/DIVISION NAME] and your particular job is right
   for you. Under certain circumstances, your introductory period may be extended by
   Management. Likewise, during this period of time if you or management decides the work
   relationship is not compatible, it is understood that the relationship may be ended without a
   stated reason.

   Career Advancement
   [COMPANY NAME] [DEPARTMENT/DIVISION NAME] maintains a ‘promote from within’
   policy as long as there are employees who are qualified for available positions. This means
   that current [DEPARTMENT/DIVISION NAME] employees are considered for promotion
   before candidates from other departments or from outside the company.              See your
   Manager for more information about applying for open positions by means of the corporate
   Information Station and/or Momentum intranet page.

   All employees are strongly encouraged to sit down with their Manager at any time to discuss
   what steps they need to take, or areas they need to develop, to prepare themselves for
   possible promotion or transfer in the future.

   Job Opportunities
   This policy provides an opportunity for eligible, qualified employees of one [COMPANY
   NAME] company (as defined below) to obtain employment with another [COMPANY NAME]
   company and maintain certain benefits as specified in this policy.

   An employee currently employed at an [COMPANY NAME] company who obtains a new job
   at another [COMPANY NAME] company under this policy will be treated as a new employee
   at the new company, except that for benefits purposes only he/she will be credited for
   employment service at prior [COMPANY NAME] companies. This policy summarizes how
   such benefits will be credited. In all cases, however, the terms of the actual benefits plans
   are controlling.

            "property."

         2. Corporate Hire Date - The date an employee was first hired at any [COMPANY NAME]

            months service in his/her current job and be discipline-free for six months before
            moving to another [COMPANY NAME] company. The hiring company may also
