EEO and Affirmative Action

As a leading global life sciences company, we must always operate with the highest ethics and integrity in our dealings with our clients, patients, vendors, and fellow employees. We are a stronger company because of our commitment to inclusion and diversity, and equal opportunity and affirmative action are important contributors to that strength. Labcorp has a responsibility to create and preserve a work environment free from discrimination and harassment.

Equal Opportunity Policy Statement
Our diversity is a tremendous asset. We are firmly committed to providing equal opportunity in all aspects of employment and to the principles of inclusion and respect. We prohibit discrimination in employment, employment-related decisions or in business dealings on the basis of an individual’s race, religion, color, national origin, gender (including pregnancy or other medical conditions/needs), family or parental status, marital, civil union or domestic partnership status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, personal appearance, age, veteran status, disability, genetic information, or any other legally protected characteristic. 

Notice to applicants and employees of Affirmative Action Program
Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings and its subsidiaries (“Labcorp”) have implemented the following policy as part of its longstanding commitment to affirmative action.

Labcorp is committed to taking positive steps to implement the employment-related aspects of our equal opportunity policy. Additionally, it is Labcorp’s policy to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified minorities, females, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities. Labcorp’s equal opportunity and affirmative action policies require that employment decisions be based only on valid job requirements, and extend to all terms, conditions, and privileges of employment including, but not limited to, recruitment, selection, compensation, benefits, training, promotion, and corrective action.

Labcorp will not discriminate or retaliate against any employee or applicant because they have inquired about, discussed or disclosed compensation information of an employee or applicant.  However, employees whose job function is to have access to other employee or applicant compensation information may not disclose that information except (a) on a need to know basis, (b) as part of a filed complaint, (c) to assist or participate in an investigation, compliance review, hearing or other governmental administrative action, (d) or to comply with any legal duty to furnish the information.   

Labcorp’s policies prohibit employees and applicants from being subjected to retaliation, harassment, intimidation, bullying, threats, coercion or discrimination because they have: (1) filed a complaint; (2) assisted or participated in an investigation, compliance review, hearing or any other activity related to the administration of any federal, state or local law requiring equal employment opportunity; (3) opposed any act or practice made unlawful by any federal, state or local law requiring equal opportunity; or, (4) exercised any other right protected by federal, state or local law requiring equal opportunity.

As President & Chief Executive Officer, I fully support our affirmative action program and I am committed to the implementation of Labcorp’s equal opportunity, anti-discrimination and harassment, and affirmative action policies. I have delegated overall responsibility for these policies, including monitoring and internal reporting to our Senior Director, Equal Opportunity & Compliance. Anyone having any questions or concerns regarding Labcorp’s affirmative action activities or would like to review the non-confidential portions of the affirmative action plans during normal business hours should contact Labcorp’s Senior Director, Equal Opportunity & Compliance at [email protected].
