Professional Services Group and Community Impact Programs maintain a strong policy of equal employment opportunity for all employees and applicants for employment. No otherwise qualified person shall be excluded from employment, be denied benefits of employment or otherwise be subject to discrimination in employment in any manner on the basis of age (over 40), race, religion, color, sex, national origin or ancestry, disability or association with a person with a disability, arrest or conviction record, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy or childbirth, military participation, genetic testing, submitting to honesty testing, or use or non use of lawful products off the employer's premises during non-work hours. Employees may not be harassed in the workplace based on their protected status nor retaliated against for filing a complaint, for assisting with a complaint, or for opposing discrimination in the workplace. Our equal employment opportunity philosophy applies to all aspects of employment with Professional Services Group and Community Impact Programs, including but not limited to recruiting, hiring, training, transfer, promotion, job benefits, pay, dismissal, educational assistance, and social and recreational activities.
No otherwise qualified applicant for service or program participant shall be excluded from participation, be denied benefits, or otherwise be subject to discrimination in any manner on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex, sexual identity, sexual orientation, religion, political beliefs or disability. No employee or other person shall intimidate, threaten, coerce, or discriminate against any otherwise qualified individual for the purpose of interfering with any right or privilege secured under one of the applicable civil rights laws, or because they have made a complaint, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding or hearing under one of the applicable civil rights laws. Program access for persons with disabilities is covered in the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended. Political belief or affiliation is protected under the Food Stamp Act of 1997 and the Workforce Investment Act of 1998. This policy covers eligibility for access to service delivery, and to treatment in all of the programs, services and activities.
All employees are expected to support the goals and programmatic activities relating to nondiscrimination in employment and service delivery.
Professional Services Group and Community Impact Programs are committed to cultural diversity and cultural competence in the workplace. Employees must be able to serve a culturally diverse client population in a manner that reflects culturally competent decision making and service delivery.
