Equal Employment Opportunity Statement
Equal Employment Opportunity Statement Example
Here is a sample EEO statement that your company can use as a good starting point to create your own statement.
It is the policy of this facility that no employee or applicant will be discriminated against because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, marital status, disability or because he or she is a disabled veteran or a veteran of the Vietnam Era. This facility will consider all individuals for any position for which they are qualified and able to perform. It is also the policy of this facility to administer all phases of its personnel activity, including recruitment, hiring, placement, upgrading, training, promotion, transfer, separation, recall, compensation, benefits, education, recreation, and all other conditions or privileges of employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, marital status, disability or veteran status.
This facility is a government contractor and is subject to Executive Order #11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Section 402 of the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 which require government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam Era.
An individual with a disability is a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of such person's major life activities. If you have such a disability or are a disabled veteran and want to be considered under the Affirmative Action Programs or if you have questions about the programs, please contact our EEO Coordinator. Submission of this information is voluntary and refusal to provide it will not subject you to discharge or disciplinary treatment. Information obtained concerning individuals will be kept confidential except that (i) supervisors and managers may be informed regarding restrictions on the work or duties of individuals with disabilities and regarding necessary accommodations, (ii) medical and safety personnel may be informed, when and to the extent appropriate, if the condition might require emergency treatment, and (iii) government officials investigating compliance with the Acts shall be informed.
This facility has developed written Affirmative Action Plans for minorities, women, people with disabilities, and disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam Era. The Plans are available for review during regular business hours. At this facility Joseph Biggs, HR Manager is responsible for administering the Affirmative Action Programs. This person is also responsible for conducting an analysis of all personnel actions to insure equal opportunity and for submitting reports on the progress of our equal opportunity efforts. Employees or applicants who feel they have been discriminated against should contact this person.
Sexual harassment or any other kind of harassment including harassment based on sexual orientation will not be tolerated.
The support of all employees in accomplishing equal employment opportunity is requested.
