Equal Opportunity Employment Policy
Oklahoma County is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate against persons on the basis of race, sex, color, national origin, religion, age, physical handicap, or veteran status.
No person in the County's employment shall be appointed to, demoted or dismissed from any position in the County, or in any way favored or discriminated against with respect to employment in the County by reason of any physical handicap, so long as the physical handicap does not prevent or render the employee less able to do the work for which the person is employed.
Furthermore, no official or employee of any department may refuse to employ or discharge any person, otherwise qualified; deny any promotion or increase in compensation publish an offer of employment; adopt or enforce any rule or employment policy which discriminates due to race, color, creed, national origin, sex, or veteran status; or seek such information regarding any applicant or employee in order to discriminate in the selection of personnel for training on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, ancestry or sex.
