Board Policy 4010

Equal Employment Opportunity and Minority Recruitment

  • The District shall provide equal employment opportunities to all persons regardless of their race, color, religion, creed, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, ancestry, marital status, arrest record, military status, order of protection status, or unfavorable military discharge, citizenship status, provided the individual is authorized to work in the United States; use of lawful products while not at work; being a victim of domestic violence, sexual violence, gender violence; genetic information; physical or mental handicap or disability, if otherwise able to perform the essential functions of the job with reasonable accommodation, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions; credit history, unless required as an established bona fide occupational requirement of a particular position, and other legally protected categories. No one will be penalized solely for his or her status as a registered qualifying patient or a registered designated caregiver for purposes of the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Program Act, 410 ILCS 130/.

     

    Minority Recruitment

    The District will aggressively recruit minority employees through such activities as advertising openings in minority publications, participating in minority job fairs, and recruiting at colleges and universities with significant minority enrollments.  The goal of the District will be that the staff population mirrors the student population. This policy, however, does not require or permit the District to give preferential treatment or special rights based on a protected status without evidence of past discrimination.

     

    Complaint Resolution

    Persons who believe they have not received equal employment opportunities should report their claims to the Nondiscrimination Coordinator and/or a Complaint Manager for the Uniform Grievance Procedure.  These individuals are listed below. No employee or applicant will be discriminated or retaliated against because he or she (1) requested, attempted to request, used, or attempted to use a reasonable accommodation as allowed by the Illinois Human Rights Act, or (2) initiated a complaint, was a witness, supplied information, or otherwise participated in an investigation or proceeding involving an alleged violation of this policy or State or federal laws, rules or regulations, provided the employee or applicant did not make a knowingly false accusation nor provide knowingly false information. The Nondiscrimination Coordinator and/or a Complaint Managers’ names, addresses and telephone numbers shall be prominently displayed on the District’s website.
