PROCEDURES: Tahoe SAFE Alliance will promote equal opportunity through a continual and progressive Equal Employment Opportunity Program (EEO). The objective of the program is to ensure nondiscrimination in all areas of employment (e.g., recruitment, hiring, promotions, and training), and in the delivery of services and benefits. Please direct all inquiries regarding the application of Federal and State employment law to the EEO/Human Resources Office.
If an Agency employee becomes aware of a complaint alleging discrimination involving the employees, applicants, volunteers, contractors, beneficiaries, or potential beneficiaries of any Agency recipient or sub-recipient, the staff must immediately notify the EEO/Human Resources Office. The EEO/Human Resources Office will follow-up with the complainant to determine the next appropriate step.
To achieve the goals of the Agency’s EEO Program, it is necessary that all members of Tahoe SAFE Alliance understand the importance of the program and their responsibility to contribute toward its achievement. The concepts of equal opportunity and nondiscrimination are based on the idea that all people will be treated fairly and equitably.
