Hospital EEO Policy Statement
It is the policy of the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital to provide equal opportunity in employment for all employees and applicants for employment regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, political affiliation, status as a parent or retaliation for opposing discriminatory practices in the discrimination-complaint process. The William S. Middleton Memorial Veteran Hospital will maintain a work environment that is free of any form of unlawful discrimination, including all forms of workplace harassment (both sexual and non-sexual). Workplace harassment will not be tolerated. Allegations of harassment will be immediately investigated, and, where allegations are substantiated, appropriate action will be taken.
All employees will have the freedom to compete on a fair and level playing field with equal opportunity for competition and will be provided prompt, fair, and impartial review and adjudication of complaints involving issues of employment discrimination. Equal opportunity covers all personnel/employment programs, management practices, and decisions including, but not limited to, recruitment/hiring, merit promotion, transfer, reassignments, training and career development, benefits, and separations.
Discrimination against employees based on protected genetic information, or on information about a request for or the receipt of, genetic services is prohibited. No individual on the basis of race, sex, color, national origin, disability, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, political affiliation, or status as a parent, shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination in a federally conducted education and training program or activity. Any federally-conducted programs or activities operated with VA funds will comply with established Limited English Proficiency (LEP) guidance.
Complaints of discrimination must be brought to the attention of an EEO Counselor at the Office of Resolution Management within 45 calendar days of the date of occurrence of the event or act alleged to be discriminatory. Procedures for initiating and processing individual complaints of discrimination may be discussed with an Office of Resolution Management EEO Counselor or the EEO Program Manager.
This hospital will promote a positive, continuing affirmative program designed to eradicate barriers to employment and to achieve a representative work force of the communities we serve. Reprisal against one who engages in protected activity will not be tolerated, and the medical centers support the rights of all employees to exercise their rights under the civil rights statutes.
As Director of the hospital, I have stressed the importance of remaining mindful of our EEO responsibilities to our supervisors and managers. Not only has this responsibility been incorporated into our performance appraisal system, but is reemphasized through administrative staff meetings and supervisory training programs.
