The University of Louisiana at Monroe firmly supports the policy of Equal Employment Opportunity as set forth in the University's Equal Employment Opportunity Policy. The University's policy in the area of equal employment opportunity shall be administered without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, or status as a disabled veteran or veteran of the Vietnam era. The University's policy prohibits sexual harassment in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations. The University's policy allows for sick-leave use for maternity purposes and treats such requests in a manner similar to leave requests for any other temporary disability. Execution of this policy requires vigorous efforts, which the University's administration supports.
The University of Louisiana at Monroe's policy fully embraces equality of opportunity for all employees by affirming that the University will take affirmative action to assure that applicants receive fair consideration for employment and that employees are treated fairly during employment including recruiting, advertising, upgrading, promotion, demotion, transfer, layoff, termination, rates of pay, forms of compensation, tenure, selection for training, and all other employment practices.
Complaints involving this policy should be made verbally or in writing to any University official, to the employee's immediate supervisor, or to the University's EEO Coordinator. Complaints will be handled in accordance with the University's Anti-Discrimination and Harassment Policy.
