Maverick Capital, and its affiliates, including Maverick Ventures (collectively, “Maverick”), is organization that prides itself on our deeply held values of responsibility and integrity. Since our founding in 1993 we have been committed to maintaining a work environment free from all forms of discrimination and harassment including sexual harassment.
Maverick has equal employment opportunity and anti-harassment policies, complaint resolution procedures and a whistleblower protection policy that can be requested from the firm. In addition, to continue our strong history of inclusivity, Maverick conducts firm-wide training sessions to cover respect and dignity in the workplace.
A summary of some of our relevant policies can be found below. If anyone has any questions, concerns or would like to report harassment-related issues, they can contact our general counsel, Trevor Wiessmann, Esq., at email@example.com.
It is Maverick’s policy to hire well qualified people to perform the many tasks necessary in providing high quality investment management services. An integral part of this policy is to provide equal employment opportunity for all persons.
In this regard, Maverick (1) adheres to federal and local laws, regulations, and guidelines with regard to nondiscrimination against job applicants and Maverick employees, and (2) provides equal employment opportunity for all persons, including in its recruiting practices and its administration of all hiring, working conditions, benefits and privileges of employment, compensation, training opportunities for advancement, and terminations of employment, without regard to the person's age, race, religious creed, sex, color, national origin, ancestry, or mental or physical disability unrelated to the job to be performed. All Maverick Personnel are expected to carry out their various job responsibilities in a manner that comports with Maverick’s equal employment policy.
Maverick is committed to the principle that all of its employees, clients, vendors and other counterparties should be able to enjoy a work environment free from all forms of discrimination and harassment, including, but not limited to, sexual harassment and harassment based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, and other bases of discrimination prohibited by law.
All Maverick Personnel are prohibited from offering, promoting, or granting preferential treatment to any employee, applicant for employment or other counterparty or potential counterparty as a result of that individual's engaging in or agreeing to engage in sexual conduct. Likewise, all Maverick Personnel are prohibited from using an employee's, applicant's, counterparty’s or potential counterparty’s refusal to engage in such conduct as a basis for a professional decision affecting that individual. An intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment may be created by such circumstances as pressure for sexual activities, unwanted and unnecessary physical contact with another employee, verbal abuse of a sexual nature, the inappropriate use of sexually explicit or offensive language, or the display in the workplace of sexually suggestive objects or pictures.
If you believe that you have been a victim of harassment in any form by a supervisor, coworker, client, vendor, or other visitor, report the incident to any partner, senior member of management, office manager or member of the HR Department immediately.
Maverick will investigate all allegations of discrimination and harassment in as prompt and confidential a manner as possible and will take appropriate corrective action when warranted. Any person who is determined by Maverick, as a result of such an investigation, to have engaged in discrimination or harassment in violation of this policy may be subject to appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment. Further, retaliation in any form against an employee or applicant who complains of discrimination or harassment is strictly prohibited, and may itself be cause for appropriate disciplinary action.
Maverick’s Whistleblower Policy covers the treatment of all concerns or complaints relating to activity that Maverick personnel reasonably believe could be improper, including, but not limited to, any violations of Maverick’s equal employment opportunity and harassment policies.
Maverick will take seriously any report regarding a potential violation of Maverick policy or other improper or illegal activity, and will promptly investigate such allegations in the manner appropriate based on the circumstances. Maverick recognizes the importance of keeping the identity of the reporting person confidential, and provides assurances that Maverick will respond to all such reported concerns or suspicions of improper activity in a timely and professional manner, confidentially and without retaliation.
It is Maverick’s policy that no person who submits a complaint (or concern) made in good faith, including to any governmental, regulatory or law enforcement agency, will experience retaliation, harassment, or unfavorable or adverse employment consequences as a result of the complaint. Anyone who retaliates against a person reporting a complaint will be subject to disciplinary action, which may include termination of employment.
Whistleblowers are required to act in good faith in reporting a complaint and must have reasonable grounds for believing a violation of Maverick’s compliance policies, employment policies or a law or regulation has occurred. Making a malicious allegation that an individual knows to be false would be considered a serious offense and would be treated as such.
