Equal Employment Opportunity

It is the policy of Independent Living Services to promote equal employment opportunity through a positive, continuing program. This means we will not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment based on race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, mental or physical disability, citizenship or any other status protected by law.

Equal employment opportunity will be extended to all persons, in all aspects of the employment relationship, including recruitment, hiring, training, promotion, transfer, discipline, layoff, recall and termination.

The staff member who is responsible for assistance in EEO is the Human Resources Director. If he or she is absent, employees may consult with the Executive Director.

Independent Living Services will reasonably accommodate employees and/or applicants with disabilities, provided the individual is otherwise qualified to perform the essential function of the job. If you believe that you need a reasonable accommodation please inform your supervisor or the Human Resources Director.

In addition, Independent Living Services is committed to maintaining a workplace that is free of discrimination, harassment and retaliation. In keeping with this commitment, Independent Living Services management prohibits any form of discrimination, harassment or retaliation in the workplace made by or toward employees.

If an employee believes that he or she has been discriminated against in any respect, he or she should immediately bring the matter to the attention of management through the Communication/Complaint Resolution procedure ( on pages 36-38 of the employee handbook). All such complaints will be treated with discretion and will be thoroughly investigated.
