Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Policy

It is the policy of Graham Windham to provide equal employment opportunity to all staff, contractors, volunteer, and applicants for employment without regard to race, creed, religion, color, national origin, ethnicity, sex (including gender identity) and sexual harassment, age, citizenship status, disability, military or veteran status, marital or familial status, status as a victim of domestic violence, sexual orientation, of affectional preference, genetic information or pre-disposition or other category protected by law.

This Equal Employment Opportunity Policy applies to all the terms and conditions of employment including but not limited to recruitment, hiring, compensation, training and apprenticeship, promotion, upgrading, demotion, downgrading, transfer, layoff, discipline, termination, and leave of absence. This policy is based on Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as amended, New York City Executive Order 50, and existing Equal Employment Opportunity laws to which the Agency is fully committed in both letter and spirit.

It is the Agency’s fundamental policy to provide equal opportunity in all areas of its employment practices. The importance of fulfilling this policy cannot be overemphasized. Equal employment opportunity is the continuous responsibility of all Graham Windham staff. Therefore, in order to achieve ultimate effectiveness in this area, the full cooperation and support of all staff are essential. Graham Windham is committed to diversity and seeks to hire staff that are representative of the communities served by the Agency. Graham Windham will endeavor to make reasonable accommodations for the known physical or mental limitations of a qualified applicant or employee with a disability, unless doing so would result in an undue hardship on the Agency. Likewise, we will make reasonable accommodations upon requests arising out of an individual’s religious beliefs or practices or status as a victim of domestic violence.

This policy governs all aspects of employment, including but not limited to recruiting, advertising, hiring, job assignment, promotion, compensation, discipline, termination, and access to benefits and training.
