Equal Employment Opportunity
The success of the Commission and the accomplishment of its mission are dependent upon our employees. For that reason, our Respectful Workplace Program begins with our commitment to selecting the best employees possible based on their skills and experience, giving all applicants an equal chance at employment and advancement. Discrimination in the hiring or advancement of employees is contrary to the policy of this Commission and to good business practice. Equal employment opportunity is more than just good business; it is the law. Discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, actual or perceived gender identity, sexual preference, or disability is strictly prohibited.
Therefore, the Industrial Commission will continue to take steps necessary to ensure that all aspects of the employment process (including recruiting, hiring, transfer, promotion, training, compensation, benefits, layoffs, terminations, and due process) do not discriminate against any individual on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, actual or perceived gender identity, sexual preference, or disability. Industrial Commission employees will also refrain from discrimination when interacting with third parties outside the office.
All newly hired employees are subject to the E-Verify Employment Eligibility Verification program, which helps employers verify employment eligibility. This program was established by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration according to Executive Order #2001-10. Participation in the E-Verify program doesn't exempt the agency from the obligation to complete a Form I-9 for everyone it hires.
