Contact and/or Presenter Information

Presenter: N/A

Contact:  Dale E. Garcia, Extension 3813

Action Requested
Motion to adopt Resolution R 13-71

Enabling/Regulating Authority
State and Federal grant requirements call for periodic reaffirmation of EEO/AA Policies.

Background Discussion

Since the late 1970's, the County has had an AA/EEO Plan, which was most recently adopted in 2001, and periodically reaffirmed thereafter.  The AA/EEO Plan and Policy Statement are available on the County's web site. 

The new plan and policy statement are recommended for adoption to be consistent with Personnel Policy changes related to applicant screening and interviewing. 

This action is a renewal of the County's commitment to equal employment opportunity in its role as employer. 

This action also ensures compliance with various Federal and State grant requirements.
