Wright Summit Productions Age Discrimination & Harassment Policy
WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS is committed to ensuring that its members have the opportunity to work in environments that are free of unlawful discrimination, harassment and any other form of inappropriate workplace behavior. Consistent with this commitment, and in compliance with both federal and state laws, WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS has adopted a ZERO TOLERANCE policy against discrimination and harassment of its members and others employed under its collective bargaining agreements.
As to discrimination, WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS is committed to ensuring that its Members are not discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, pregnancy, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, age, marital status, disability, medical condition, veteran status or any other characteristic protected by state or federal laws. Further, WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS is committed to ensuring its members are not the victims of sexual harassment or other actions based on any form of unlawful harassment, including any other characteristic protected by state or federal anti-discrimination and harassment laws. Consistent with all WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS collective bargaining agreements (including legacy AFTRA and SAG CBAs), this policy applies to employers of WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS members, including their employees, agents, representatives, contractors, subcontractors and vendors. All producers are expected to comply with and enforce WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS’s anti-discrimination and harassment policies on any project in which a WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS member is employed and/or engaged to provide services.
WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS members are also protected from discrimination and sexual harassment from agents and their representatives. Agents must place the interest of the member above their own and shall never consider or act upon their own interests when they are averse to the interests of the member. In addition, those agents franchised under Rule 12-C are bound by the non-discrimination provision found within that agreement.
If a WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS member believes that he or she has been the victim of unlawful discrimination or harassment, he or she should immediately report the incident. WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS takes all incidents of harassment and discrimination seriously and seeks maximum confidentiality for the affected party. Formal complaints filed with WRIGHT SUMMIT PRODUCTIONS shall be processed appropriately based on the union’s internal guidelines and policies.
The above is intended to provide you with an understanding of what a discrimination and/or harassment claim would entail and the relevant deadlines associated with any claims you may wish to file through state or federal agencies. Please be advised of the multiple deadlines for filing discrimination/harassment claims with federal and state agencies and courts. We recommend that you consult with a private attorney to discuss further options. State agencies have deadlines for filing complaints that can range from 180 days to one year, and the Federal EEO Commission has a 180-day deadline which can be extended to 300 days if a state or local agency enforces a law that prohibits employment discrimination on the same basis.
For specific information on how you might go about pursuing these avenues, you will need to consult outside counsel.

It is the policy of Wright Summit Productions that all employees are responsible for ensuring the workplace is free of sexual harassment. Because of Wright Summit Productions’ strong disapproval of offensive or inappropriate sexual behavior at work, all employees must avoid any action or conduct which could be viewed as sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexually harassing nature, when: (1) submission to the harassment is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of employment; (2) submission to or rejection of the harassment is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting the individual; or (3) the harassment has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.
Any employee who has a complaint of sexual harassment at work by anyone, including supervisors, co-workers or visitors, should first clearly inform the harasser that his/her behavior is offensive or unwelcome and request that the behavior stop. if the behavior continues, the employee must immediately bring the matter to the attention of his/her supervisor. If the immediate supervisor is involved in the harassing activity, the violation should be reported to that supervisor’s immediate supervisor, the department personnel officer, or the employee relations coordinator, who can be reached at (888) 434-5349, extension 700.
If a supervisor or personnel officer knows of an incident of sexual harassment, they shall take appropriate remedial action immediately. If the alleged harassment involves any types of threats of physical harm to the victim, the alleged harasser may be suspended with pay. During such suspension, an investigation will be conducted by Wright Summit Productions. If the investigation supports charges of sexual harassment, disciplinary action against the alleged harasser will take place and may include termination. if the investigation reveals that the charges were brought falsely and with malicious intent, the charging party may be subject to disciplinary action, including termination.
If an employee is dissatisfied with management’s response to his/her complaint, he/she may contact the Virginia Employment Commission at http://www.vec.virginia.gov/sexual-harassment-policy, District of Columbia Employment Commission at http://ohr.dc.gov/publication/dc-sexual-harassment-policy or Maryland Commission on Human Rights at http://www.dbm.maryland.gov/eeo/Documents/SexHarrassPolicy.pdf.
