Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is an Affirmative Action Equal Employment Opportunity employer committed to equal opportunity to all individuals regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender and/or gender identity or expression, marital or parental status, genetic information, national origin, ethnicity, citizenship status, veteran or military status (including disabled veteran, recently separated veteran, other protected veteran, or Armed Forces service medal veteran status), age, disability, use or nonuse of lawful products off the employer's premises during nonworking hours, declining to attend a meeting or participate in any communication about religious matters or political matters, or any other category protected by law. Harassment or discrimination based upon protected status is illegal and will not be tolerated. This policy is applicable to employment practices and all programs within the University. This commitment to all employment and educational practices includes, but is not limited to, recruitment and hiring, training, compensation, benefits, promotions, transfers, terminations, layoffs, access to facilities, as well as social and recreational programs.
UW-Green Bay’s affirmative action hiring practices aim to recruit a diverse pool of applicants for every job vacancy and to remove all forms of bias (intentional and unintentional) from the evaluation of applicants to ensure that no individual receives advantage or disadvantage based upon a protected status.
Implicit to our equal employment opportunity efforts is a work environment free of harassment based upon any protected class noted above. UW-Green Bay is committed to prompt, impartial examination and resolution of complaints and grievances to maintain a workplace free of harassment and discrimination. This commitment to all employment and educational practices includes, but is not limited to, recruitment and hiring, training, compensation, benefits, promotions, transfers, terminations, layoffs, access to facilities, as well as social and recreational programs. Please see the Policy and Procedures Prohibiting Harassment and Discrimination for further information.
UW-Green Bays’ compliance with these efforts is the responsibility of all administrators and others whose duties are related to decisions effecting employees. Further, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is committed to fully participate in the implementation of all applicable federal and state laws, executive orders, rules, regulations, and policies affecting employees.
