CLEVELAND COUNTY IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER

 

CLEVELAND COUNTY

EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY PLAN

INTRODUCTION

Cleveland County Government is firmly committed to a policy of nondiscrimination in all personnel practices to ensure equal opportunity for employment, promotion, training and salary potential for all segments of the community.  All aspects of employment shall be based solely on individual merit without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability (except where gender, age, or physical requirements are legitimate occupational qualifications), or any other non-merit factor.

Established as a supplement to the recruitment guidelines in Article IV of the Cleveland County Personnel Ordinance, the Equal Employment Opportunity Plan (EEO) will be used as the method by which the County formulates its commitment to these ideals, measures its achievements, and evaluates its effectiveness.  It outlines objectives, assigns responsibilities, establishes goals and provides for an annual evaluation of its effectiveness
. 

The policies and programs outlined in this plan are applicable to all officers and employees of Cleveland County except the Sheriff's Office, Board of Elections and Register of Deeds.

While this document cannot be considered an employment contract between Cleveland County and its employees, we view the principles of equal employment as a vital element in the employment process and as a hallmark of good management.

 

EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY

POLICY STATEMENT

 

Cleveland County Personnel Ordinance, Article IV, Section 1 establishes the following:

“It is the policy of the County to maintain a systematic, consistent recruitment program, to promote equal employment opportunity, and to identify and attract the most qualified applicants for all present and future vacancies.  This intent is achieved through consistency in announcing all positions, evaluating all applicants on the same criteria, and by applying testing methods through the Local Job Service Office (Employment Security Commission).  To avoid discrimination, equal employment opportunities are allowed without regard to sex, race, religion, color, national origin, age, or disability.  These prohibitions against discrimination are consistent with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as amended, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 as amended, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as amended.

This policy statement shall also ensure greater utilization of all persons by identifying previously underutilized groups in the work force, such as women, minorities, and the disabled, and make special efforts toward their recruitment, selection, appointment, promotion, development, and upward mobility.  A work force analysis will be periodically conducted to determine whether percentages of minorities and women employed in various categories are substantially similar to percentages of those groups available in the relevant labor force.  If an under representation is identified, employment procedures will be analyzed to determine the cause.  Efforts will be made to seek qualified applicants to correct any substantial disparities identified as a result of this analysis.  A periodic evaluation of the County’s personnel policies and practices relevant to total employment will guarantee equal opportunities for all persons, while eliminating any artificial barriers to equal employment opportunity.”

Cleveland County Government is committed to providing Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) to all qualified persons regardless of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, or disability. The Human Resources Department has been designated to administer the County's EEO Program and will monitor the program and make reports on a periodic and continuing basis.  All employment and personnel policies and practices -- recruiting, hiring, promotions, transfers, training, compensation, benefits, reductions-in-force, and terminations will be administered according to EEO principles.

Any employee or applicant for employment who believes that he or she has not been treated in accordance with the County's policy for equal employment opportunity may file a grievance with the Human Resources Department. This policy prohibits any retaliatory action against any employee or applicant because that person made a charge, testified, or participated in the proceeding or investigation of employment discrimination.

This Equal Employment Opportunity Plan is designed to provide guidance with respect to the County's commitment to full implementation of its EEO policy. The County's policy includes, without limitation, the following commitments:

  • To continue to provide equal employment opportunity to all qualified persons, and to continue to recruit, hire, train, promote and compensate persons in all jobs without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, or disability.
  • To properly communicate the County's policy to all employees who are involved in the recruiting, screening, selection, promotion, disciplinary and related personnel processes for the purpose of making good-faith efforts to ensure that personnel decisions are made without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, or disability.
  • To notify recruitment resources and community organizations of our EEO Policy and to ask them to refer qualified candidates for available positions.

The County Manager is charged with directing the implementation of the County's EEO Program. The Human Resources Department shall assist the County Manager by administering and monitoring the EEO Program on a daily basis. The Human Resources Department will submit an annual report to the Manager, indicating the progress of the County in acquiring and maintaining a workforce where minorities and females are represented proportionally to the availability of minorities and females in the labor force.
