Equal Opportunity Statement

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.

 

It is the policy of the City of Bogalusa to employ positive practices designed to ensure the full realization of equal employment opportunity without regard to race, color, age, religion, sex, national origin, disability or veteran's status.


To implement this policy, the City of Bogalusa will continue to:

  • Recruit, hire, train and promote persons in all job classifications in accordance with this equal opportunity policy.
  • Make selection decisions according to the principles of equal employment opportunity by imposing only valid requirements for employment opportunities.
  • Ensure that all personnel practices and programs (including, but not limited to compensation, benefits, transfers, training, and education) will be administered without regard to race, color, age, religion, sex, national origin, disability or veteran's status.
Further, the City expects all employees to accomplish their work in a businesslike manner with a concern for the well-being of their co-workers. Any harassment to employees by fellow employees is not permitted, regardless of their working relationship.

 

Any employee who experiences discrimination should bring it to the attention of his or her supervisor, department head, or to the Personnel Director. Any employee violating the City's rule against discrimination may be subject to discipline, up to and including discharge.

 

In the same spirit, the City will endeavor to assure equal opportunity for full participation of women and minority owned businesses in contracting to provide goods and/or services to the City.
