Genesee County provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to religion, race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, marital status, height, weight, arrest record, genetic information and familial status. In addition to federal law requirements, Genesee County complies with applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment in every location in which the County has facilities. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation and training.

Genesee County expressly prohibits any form of workplace harassment based on race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, genetic information, disability, or veteran status. Improper interference with the ability of Genesee County’s employees to perform their job duties may result in discipline up to and including discharge.

Genesee County prohibits retaliation against employees who file complaints or participate in investigations. 

Accordingly, the Genesee County Board of Commissioners is committed to the principles of Equal Employment as an integral part of its human resources system.
