Oil & Gas Admins International is committed in all areas to providing a work environment and membership that is free from harassment. Harassment based upon an individual’s sex, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, religion or any other legally protected characteristics will not be tolerated. All employees and members, including supervisors and other management personnel, are expected and required to abide by this policy. No person will be adversely affected in employment or membership with O&GA International as a result of bringing complaints of unlawful harassment.
The O&GA International anti-harassment policy includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when (1) submission to or rejection of such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment or membership; (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for decisions about employment, membership, promotion, transfer, selection for training, performance evaluations, benefits, or other terms and conditions of employment or membership; or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect of creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment or substantially interferes with an employee or member’s performance.
If an employee or member feels that he or she has been harassed on the basis of his or her sex, race, national origin, ethnic background, or any other legally protected characteristic, they should immediately report the matter to the O&GA International Executive Committee where the matter will be promptly investigated and any necessary corrective action will be taken where appropriate. All complaints of unlawful harassment will be handled in as discreet and confidential a manner as is possible under the circumstances.
The procedure for reporting incidents of harassing behavior is not intended to impair, replace, or limit the right of any employee or member to seek a remedy under available state or federal law by immediately reporting the matter to the appropriate state or federal agency.
Any employee or member engaging in improper harassing behavior will be subject to disciplinary action, including the possible termination of employment or membership.

Oil & Gas Admins International (O&GA) is a professional organization formed to collect, disseminate, and exchange technical knowledge concerning oil, gas and administrative support; and to provide opportunities for oil and energy professionals to enhance their administrative, technical and professional competence.
In carrying out these objectives, it is O&GA’s resolute policy that all O&GA activities shall be conducted in strict conformity with applicable antitrust laws. O&A will not condone any violation of its policy in this regard, and any member or employee who violates such policy will be subject to expulsion or discharge from O&GA.
The above stated purpose of O&GA also serves the goal of promoting competition. To this end, and to the end of avoiding violation of the antitrust laws, O&GA has adopted an Antitrust Compliance Policy that specifically requires observance of the following principles.
Price-Fixing – O&GA will not enter into any discussions or agreement among competitors to raise, lower or stabilize prices, even if the agreed-upon price is reasonable, and even if the agreement is never put into effect.
Agreement to Divide Customers or Territory – O&A will not discuss or enter into any agreement to divide the market or customers in such a way as to allow each party to the agreement to serve its share of the market without competition from the others. O&GA will not discuss or enter into any agreement with a competitor to divide or allocate customers or territory including any agreement to stay out of another’s territory.
Group Boycotts – O&GA will not discuss or enter into any agreement with competing companies to deal with some third party, sometimes called a “group boycott”. O&GA will not discuss or agree with another company or organization to deny doing business with a particular supplier or customer, or to agree to do business only with certain suppliers or customers or only on certain terms and conditions.
Membership Restrictions – Any person or entity that meets the criteria for O&GA membership and pays the applicable dues shall be admitted and allowed to remain as a member. Competitive concerns, commercial disputes, or personal animosity shall not be a basis for denying or revoking membership. O&GA is a trade association and will not deny or restrain membership to limit the ability of the applicant or nonmember to compete.
Product Standards – O&GA’s standards related to product manufacture, performance, or compatibility will be prepared through a consensus process that is balanced and allows for participation by all interested parties. O&GA standards will be based on oil and energy administrative, technical, engineering, and safety factors. Whether a member chooses to offer products in conformance with any standard shall be a voluntary decision.
Industry Statistics – O&GA may compile and distribute industry data on oil and energy administrative and support topics. O&GA will not use statistical programs to fix prices, allocate production, or otherwise restrain trade.
O&GA Meetings – To minimize the possibility of antitrust problems at O&GA gatherings, the following guidelines will be followed at all meetings of the Executive Committee and standard committees, as well as all O&GA-sponsored conventions, trade shows, training seminars, conferences, and task force and working group sessions.
