Equal Employment Opportunity


Family Compass is committed to recruit, hire, train and promote employees without regard to race, sex, age, color, religion, national origin, pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, disability, citizenship status; uniform service member status; veteran status, worker’s compensation history or any other status which is protected by local, state, or federal law. Furthermore, Family Compass will not unlawfully retaliate against employees for asserting any rights protected by law. Family Compass recognizes that the effective implementation of this policy requires more than just publishing this policy and will, therefore, advise supervisors and managers in how to promote and ensure equal opportunity in the workplace. In addition, this policy will be made known to all Family Compass employees as well as all persons who come to Family Compass seeking employment. Each employee is responsible for helping Family Compass maintain a climate that provides equal opportunity for all. Complaints of discrimination or harassment should be addressed in accordance with Family Compass’s Complaint Procedures, outlined in detail in the Employee Handbook. In Texas, the following also are a protected class: race; color; disability; religion; sex; pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition; national origin; age [40 or over] and genetic information [or refusal to submit to a genetic test]. You may discuss equal employment opportunity related questions with the Director of Finance & Operations or any other designated member of management.


Americans with Disabilities Act


Our agency is committed to providing equal employment opportunities to qualified individuals with disabilities. This may include providing reasonable accommodation where appropriate in order for an otherwise qualified individual to perform the essential functions of the job. It is your responsibility to notify the Director of Finance & Operations of the need for accommodation. Upon doing so, the Director of Finance & Operations may ask you for your input or the type of accommodation you believe may be necessary or the functional limitations caused by your disability. Also, when appropriate, we may need your permission to obtain additional information from your physician or other medical or rehabilitation professionals. The agency will not seek genetic information in connection with requests for accommodation. All medical information received by the agency in connection with a request for accommodation will be treated as confidential.
