Mission Statement:
Washington County firmly believes in, and subscribes to, fair employment practices and opens its facilities to every qualified person. In all employment practices, the County is committed to prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, sex, age, marital status, or disability. Washington County supports all federal and state laws, rules and regulations dealing with discrimination and specifically endorses all applicable provisions of Title VII of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the New York State Human Rights Law and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

It is the policy of Washington County to be fair and impartial in all its relations with employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, marital status, disability or sexual orientation. Decisions on employment will be based so as to further the principle of Equal Employment Opportunity.

Washington County will ensure that hiring, promotion, training and transfer decisions are in accord with principles of Equal Employment Opportunity by imposing only valid position requirements. Washington County also will ensure that all other personnel actions, such, but not limited to compensation (including rates of pay), benefits, transfers, lay-offs, return from layoff, terminations, and training will be administered without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status, disability or sexual orientation

Complaints concerning possible or perceived violations of these provisions should be directed to the department head, the County Administrator or Personnel Officer.
