    Jamestown School Department is committed to maintaining a work and learning environment free from discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, pregnancy, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital/civil union status, ancestry, place of birth, age, citizenship status, veteran status, political affiliation, genetic information or disability, as defined and required by state and federal laws. Additionally, we prohibit retaliation against individuals who oppose such discrimination and harassment or who participate in an equal opportunity investigation.

    The U.S. Department of Labor indicates that employers should place a prominent notice on their job posting website stating that “Applicants have rights under Federal Employment Laws” This should be linked to three postings: Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA).

    Posting these notices on the website is not a substitute for posting them on the employer’s premises, however. Employers must also display physical copies of the posters, so applicants are informed of federal employment law rights when they come to the physical company location for in-person interviews.
