This policy provides:
- a standard Equal Employment Opportunity nondiscrimination statement for examinations and job bulletins.
The State of California prohibits discrimination against any job applicant, unpaid intern, or employee in the hiring, promotions, assignments, or privilege of employment. Federal and state laws require employers to notice applicants regarding protections from employment discrimination.
The California Department of Human Resources revised the equal employment opportunity nondiscrimination statement on its examination and job announcement bulletins to conform with federal and state law changes. The following statement is expansive and informs job seekers of their protected rights. Accordingly, agencies are instructed to update their examination and job announcements using this same statement.
“The State of California is an equal opportunity employer to all, regardless of age, ancestry, color, disability (mental and physical), exercising the right to family care and medical leave, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, medical condition, military or veteran status, national origin, political affiliation, race, religious creed, sex (includes pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and related medical conditions), and sexual orientation.”
