Equal Employment Opportunity

Greenville Township / Greenville Township Emergency Services is an equal opportunity employer.  All employees shall be recruited, evaluated, hired, promoted, transferred, demoted, laid off, suspended or terminated without unlawful discrimination.  No personnel decisions concerning any term or condition of employment shall be based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability, except where such criteria constitutes a bona fide occupational requirement.

Americans With Disability Act

Greenville Township / Greenville Township Emergency Services supports the intent and purposes of the American With Disabilities Act, herein referred to as “ADA”, and will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities because of the disability of such individual in regard to the job application procedures, the hiring, advancement, or discharge of employees, employee compensation, job training and other terms, conditions and privileges of employment.

Sexual Harassment

Greenville Township / Greenville Township Emergency Services strictly prohibits sexual harassment of employees in the workplace by any person, in any form.  It is both illegal and against the policy of the Employer for any person, male or female, to sexually harass an employee.  The Employer has identified three (3) situations in which “unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature” constitute sexual harassment:

1.               When an employee must submit to such conduct as a condition of employment;

2.               When decisions about an employee’s job such as promotion, demotion, benefits and wages are based on submission to or rejection of such conduct; and

3.               When such conduct “unreasonably interferes” with job performance and creates an “intimidating, hostile or offensive” working environment.

The first two (2) categories are commonly referred to as “quid pro quo” sexual harassment, in which submitting to sexual advances or some type of sexual consideration is required in exchange for a tangible job benefit.  The third category prohibits harassment based on a “hostile or offensive” work environment, even where there has been no conditioning of employment benefits for sexual favors.  Such harassment typically involves workplace conduct such as lewd or explicit sexual remarks, innuendos, jokes, gestures, touching, discussions of sexual activity, and display of obscene or suggestive pictures or cartoons.

Complaint Procedure

Any person may file a complaint if they believe that another person has illegally discriminated against them under any local, state or federal anti-discrimination law, including a violation of the ADA or conduct involving sexual harassment.

All complaints alleging illegal discrimination shall be filed on a “EEO Complaint Form”.  This form should be filed as soon as possible but within 180 days following the alleged violation.  Complaints shall be filed as outlined above. The bases for the complaint and if the complaint has been filed with another agency must be included.

An acknowledgement will be sent via e-Mail or USPS within 10 days of receipt of complaints filed with Greenville Township or Greenville Township Emergency Services.

All complaints will be fully investigated internally and treated confidentially. Greenville Township / Greenville Township Emergency Services reserves the right to refer the complaint to an appropriate outside agency.
