Equal Employment Opportunity Statement; Statement on Discrimination
Kenyon College has a long standing record of nondiscrimination in employment and opportunity based on race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, physical and/or mental disability, age, religion, medical condition, veteran status, marital status, or any other characteristic protected by institutional policy or state, local, or federal law. The President has issued the following policy statement regarding nondiscrimination:
Kenyon is committed to providing equal employment opportunity without regard to race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, physical and/or mental disability, age, religion, medical condition, veteran status, marital status, or any other characteristic protected by institutional policy or state, local, or federal law. This policy applies to all areas of employment, including recruitment, hiring, training and development, promotion, transfer, termination, layoff, compensation, benefits, social and recreational programs, as well as all other conditions and privileges of employment in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws.
Equal employment opportunity notices are posted on appropriate employee bulletin boards as required by law. The notices summarize the rights of employees to equal opportunity in employment and lists the names and addresses of the various government agencies that may be contacted in the event that any person believes they have been discriminated against.
It is the practice and policy of Kenyon College to comply with all the relevant and applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Kenyon College will not discriminate against any qualified employee or job applicant with respect to any terms, privileges, or conditions of employment because of a person's physical or mental disability. Kenyon College also will make reasonable accommodation wherever necessary for all employees or applicants with disabilities, provided that the individual is otherwise qualified to safely perform the duties and assignments connected with the job and provided that any accommodations made do not require significant difficulty or expense.
Management is primarily responsible for seeing that Kenyon College's equal employment opportunity policies are implemented, but all members of the staff share in the responsibility for assuring that by their personal actions the policies are effective and apply uniformly to everyone.
Any employees, including managers, involved in discriminatory practices will be subject to discharge.
