The TIC Training Center is committed to creating an atmosphere of inclusion, tolerance, and respect. With that in mind, we don’t discriminate and we ask you not to as well. If you do discriminate while using or contributing to our services, we will talk to you about it. If you do not stop and make appropriate amends we will terminate our relationship with you.
Here is what discrimination looks like. Some of this doesn’t apply to our context, but these are a good definition and examples nonetheless.
Discrimination is treating people differently based on actual or perceived differences in protected categories. These categories include race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender, marital status, or ability status.
Here are some examples. Doing any of the following based on a protected category is discriminatory:
- Declining or refusing a customer
- Declining to receive services or declining to pay for services already rendered
- Imposing any different terms or conditions on services
- Posting any listing or making any statement that discourages or indicates a preference for or against someone
Here are some examples that are not discriminatory:
- Accommodating Gender Privacy: Providing gender choice when a service requires close physical proximity, intimate physical contact with, or full or partial nudity on the part of the customer (such as a massage or spa services), or for religious reasons.
- Accommodating Disability Needs Upon Request: Providing reasonable access to services, including flexibility when customers with disabilities request modest changes
- Declining Disruptions: Declining services based on factors that are not prohibited by law. For example, declining to provide services to customers who want to smoke in their establishment or who are being disruptive.
