Discrimination

Discrimination
Hormel Foods employs an independent third-party analysis to statistically review pay information by gender, minority and age to ensure nondiscriminatory pay practices, of which none were found.
In 2013, there were zero incidents of discrimination. There were also no industrial disputes, strikes and/or lock-outs. Therefore, we did not lose any hours of working time.
