Accessible infrastructure at InSemi includes ramps in buildings, pathways, accessible common areas, mobility support, where required – golf carts, manual and motorized wheelchairs, comfortable workstations, screen readers and other supporting assistive devices, as needed.
    (Reasonable accommodation means necessary and appropriate modification and adjustments, without imposing a disproportionate or undue burden in a
    particular case on the company, to ensure to persons with disabilities the enjoyment or exercise of rights equally with others in the offices of InSemi).
  2. Information essential to the job and workplace, such as job instructions, employee handbook, information on support facility, intranet, grievance procedures or health and safety procedures are communicated to employees with disabilities in a format which ensures that they are fully informed.

4.     Employee Resource Group 

 

We have an employee resource group (ERG) for InSemi’ employees with disability and their allies. This ERG aims to create a safe and inclusive work environment for employees with disability. The ERG runs campaigns and programs to not only sensitize employees, but also invite employees to provide their inputs on how they can foster inclusion of employees with disability.  

 

5.     Extra Leave

 

An employee’s request for extra leave, for a reason related to her/his disability, will be treated as authorized unpaid absence from work.

 

6.     Grievance Handling 

 

  1. In case of any grievances, the employees can raise a complaint by writing to the assigned HR POC.
  2. InSemi will not retaliate nor discriminate against any employee or applicant because he or she has opposed any unlawful employment practice or filed a charge of employment discrimination, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing related to employment practices.
