Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action for Individuals with Disabilities, Disabled Veterans And Veterans Of The Vietnam Era Policy
As stated in its equal employment policy, the University prohibits discrimination against any employee or applicant for employment, on the basis of his or her veteran or disability status. Individuals covered under this policy include disabled veterans, special disabled veterans, recently separated veterans, Armed Forces Service Medal veterans, Veterans of the Vietnam Era, other protected veterans, and individuals with physical or mental impairments which substantially limit one or more major life activities. Additionally, the University prohibits harassment of employees or applicants for employment based on veteran and/or disability status. It is also the policy of Georgia State University to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified disabled veterans, veterans of the Vietnam era and individuals with disabilities. This policy applies to all employment actions including, but not limited to advertising, recruitment, hiring, compensation, retention, training, demotion, promotion or transfer, layoff or terminations and tenure. Persons wishing to self-identify or file a complaint should contact the AVP of Opportunity Development at 10 Park Place Suite 460, Atlanta, GA 30303-3085, (404) 413-2567.
All personnel actions involving veterans and individuals with disabilities will be governed by the affirmative action programs developed in compliance with 41 CER Parts 60-74 and 60-250.
In order to ensure compliance, operational responsibility for implementing and monitoring this policy and maintaining and updating the affirmative action plan for veterans and individuals with disabilities lies with the AVP of Opportunity Development. This affirmative action plan is available for inspection by any employee or applicant for employment, during normal business hours, in the Georgia State University Office located at 10 Park Place South, Suite 460.
Every member of this university community is expected to uphold this policy as a matter of mutual respect and fundamental fairness in human relations. The policy has my unequivocal support and I expect all members of the staff, faculty and student body to join me in order to ensure that nondiscriminatory practices are followed at Georgia State University.
