Equal Employment Opportunity
DAOES shall provide equal employment opportunities to all persons regardless of their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, ancestry, marital status, arrest record, military status, unfavorable military discharge, citizenship status provided the individual is authorized to work in the United States, use of lawful products while not at work, order of protection status, being a victim of domestic or sexual violence, genetic information, physical or mental handicap or disability, if otherwise able to perform the essential functions of the job with reasonable accommodation, pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions; credit history, unless a satisfactory credit history is an established bona fide occupational requirement of a particular position, or other legally protected categories. No one will be penalized solely for his or her status as a registered qualifying patient or a registered designated caregiver for purposes of the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, 410 ILCS 130/.
Persons who believe they have not received equal employment opportunities should report their claims to the Nondiscrimination Coordinator and/or a Complaint Manager for the Uniform Grievance Procedure. These individuals are listed below. No employee or applicant will be discriminated or retaliated against because he or she: (1) requested, attempted to request, used, or attempted to use a reasonable accommodation as allowed by the Illinois Human Rights Act, or (2) initiated a complaint, was a witness, supplied information, or otherwise participated in an investigation or proceeding involving an alleged violation of this policy or State or federal laws, rules or regulations, provided the employee or applicant did not make a knowingly false accusation nor provide knowingly false information.
Minority Recruitment and Hiring
The DAOES Board is desirous of employing and maintaining a culturally and socially diverse staff. To that end, it is a goal of the Board to:
1. recruit minority applicants in all employment positions, including teachers, other certificated employees and noncertificated employees, including custodians, lunchroom staff and teacher assistants;
2. attempt to provide equal employment opportunities to all minority job applicants; and
3. hire those minority applicants who, in the judgment of the Board, are those most qualified for the positions for which they have applied.
The administration is directed to implement this policy in methods it deems appropriate, subject to further guidance by the Board.
This policy statement contains goals and objectives of the DAOES Board and is not intended to constitute a contractual obligation or commitment.
Persons who believe they have not received equal employment opportunities should report their claims to the DAOES Administrative office.
The Director shall appoint a Nondiscrimination Coordinator for personnel who shall be responsible for coordinating the System’s nondiscrimination efforts.
