Anyone found to be engaging in any type of unlawful discrimination will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.

Smoking Policy

In keeping with our intent to provide a safe and healthful work environment, smoking in the workplace and on company vessels is discouraged. Smoking is prohibited in all company offices and company vehicles. Employees are asked to respect these non-smoking designations. This policy applies equally to all employees, customers, and visitors. Employees while onboard company vessels are allowed to smoke, but with restrictions that ensure a safe work environment and respect for non-smokers. Absolutely no smoking is allowed in sleeping berths or bathrooms. Smoking in lounge areas should be limited. Smoking in the wheelhouse is allowed if the Captain on duty is a smoker, otherwise smoking is not allowed. In situations where the preference of smokers and nonsmokers are in direct conflict, the preferences of nonsmokers will prevail.
