Equal Employment Opportunity

A. The board promotes equal employment opportunity in the recruitment and selection process by ensuring that qualification requirements are job-related and that such requirements do not limit or restrict employment opportunities because of race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, national origin, or political affiliation (except where sex or age is a bona fide occupational qualification).

B. All local departments shall prepare their own affirmative action plan in accordance with the administrative manual or comply with a written local jurisdiction plan that provides an aggressive, coherent management program for equal employment for all employees and applicants for employment.

C. Employees or applicants for employment who believe that they have been discriminated against may file a complaint with the Virginia Department of Human Resource Management, Office of Equal Employment Services, James Monroe Building, 101 North 14th Street, Richmond, Virginia 23219.

D. All local departments are required to cooperate fully with the Office of Equal Employment Services or any other official investigation of charges of discrimination. Cooperation includes providing papers, notes, documents, and any other written material and responding to questions deemed necessary to investigate the charge.
