Equal Employment Opportunity
The City of Boulder believes that a diverse work force adds quality and perspective to the services that we provide to the public. Therefore, we will strive to develop and maintain a diverse work force which values and is sensitive to the differences among employees. It is the City of Boulder's ongoing policy and practice to strive for equal opportunity in employment to all employees and applicants. No person shall be discriminated against in any term, condition, or privilege of employment because of race, national origin, religion, disability, pregnancy, age, military status, marital status, genetic characteristics or information, gender, gender identity, gender variance, or sexual orientation.
Any individual employed by the city, county, state, or private office employing over 15 employees may be covered by the laws protecting individuals from discrimination. Specifically, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), District Office, handles the age discrimination and employment act of 1967; Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; and the equal pay based on equal work act of 1963. These three federal acts cover areas prohibiting discrimination in employment based on race, sex, age, religion, national origin and color. Furthermore, equal pay for equal work and age discrimination are also covered.
If you feel you have been discriminated against in employment, call the EEOC, District Office so they can provide counseling and explain the procedures to file a complaint. Their number is 303-866-1300.
