Affirmative Action

Affirmative Action

Union County Educational Services Commission is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.

In addition to federal law requirements, the Commission complies with all applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment in every location in which the district has facilities. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including but not limited to, recruiting, hiring, placement, promotion, disciplinary action, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation and/or training.

Union County Educational Services Commission also affirms its responsibility to ensuring that all students enrolled in its schools receive equal admission consideration and educational opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information. Limited English proficiency nor economic status are also not deterrents to admission to any Commission program. 

Union County Educational Services Commission maintains its Affirmative Action Plans for Employment, Contract and Classroom practices on file for public review in the Office of the District Affirmative Action/504 Compliance Officer, Mr. Michael Kowalski.
