Equal Employment Opportunity And Affirmative Action For Individuals With Disabilities, Disabled Veterans And Veterans Of The Vietnam Era Policy
It is the policy of Georgia State University not to discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because he or she is an individual with a disability, a disabled veteran or a veteran of the Vietnam era. 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 termination and tenure. Persons wishing to self-identify as an individual with a disability, disabled veteran or veteran of the Vietnam era or file a complaint should contact the Director of Affirmative Action at Ten Park Place South Suite 460, Atlanta, GA 30303-3083, 404-651-2567.
All personnel actions involving individuals with disabilities, disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam era will be governed by the affirmative action programs developed in compliance with 41 CFR Parts 60-741 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 individuals with disabilities, disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam era lies with the Director of Affirmative Action. This affirmative action plan is available for inspection by any employee or applicant for employment, during normal business hours, in the Georgia State University Affirmative Action Office located at Ten Park Place South, Suite 460.
Every member of the university community is expected to uphold this policy as a matter of mutual respect and fundamental fairness in human relations. This policy has the unequivocal support of the Office of the President and all members of the staff, faculty and student body are expected to ensure that nondiscriminatory practices are followed at Georgia State University.
