Equal Employment Opportunity

It is the State of Arizona’s policy to provide equal employment opportunity to all without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, genetic information, pregnancy, military or veteran status, or any other status protected by law. All individuals are to be treated in a fair and non-discriminatory manner throughout the employment process.


The State is committed to maintaining human dignity and protecting its employees from unlawful harassment, whether it is of a sexual nature or based on race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, genetic information, gender, pregnancy, military or veteran status or any other status protected by federal and state laws, rules, and regulations. Unlawful harassment in any form, whether verbal, physical or visual, is prohibited and will result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.


The State prohibits retaliation against anyone for raising a concern about, assisting in an investigation of, or filing a complaint concerning unlawful discrimination or unlawful harassment.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The State of Arizona follows the ADA, as amended, by ensuring equal employment opportunities for qualified persons with disabilities and by providing employees, visitors, and contractors with equal access to facilities, programs, and services. For additional information or assistance, contact your agency’s Human Resources office.


Your agency will have procedures for addressing employee complaints of discrimination, harassment or retaliation and personnel assigned to conduct investigations. Also, a specific office within your agency may be designated to address the State’s commitment to equal employment opportunity or your Human Resources office may serve this purpose.

If you believe you have been the victim of unlawful discrimination, harassment or retaliation, or are aware or concerned that someone else has been, report it immediately. Your agency will have procedures for addressing employee complaints.
