Welcome to the website of the Equal Opportunity Office

EOO is surveying County employees to complete two surveys. . Federal law requires employers doing business with the federal government to take affirmative action to recruit, hire and promote qualified individuals with disabilities and categories of veterans covered by the law, including disabled veterans and recently separated veterans (i.e., still within the three-year period beginning from the date of discharge or release from active duty). Section 503 prohibits employment discrimination against individuals based on a disability. VEVRAA also states it is illegal to discriminate against protected veterans when making employment decisions on hiring, firing, pay, benefits, job assignment, promotions, layoffs, training and other employment related activities.
