Equal Opportunity (EEO) Policy
It is the policy of West Florida Healthcare to afford equal opportunity for employment to all individuals regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, and veteran status. We are committed to this policy. We will take affirmative action* to assure that all employment decisions are based only on valid job requirements and that equal opportunity is provided in all aspects of employment, including but not limited to recruitment, hire, training, transfer or promotion, compensation, benefits, social functions, and decisions regarding continued employment.
The successful achievement of nondiscriminatory employment program requires cooperation between management and employees. In fulfilling its part of this cooperative effort, management will lead the way in establishing and implementing affirmative procedures and practices aimed at reaching our objective to provide equitable employment opportunities for all.
We will maintain a working environment free from all forms of harassment, including sexual harassment, and will comply with all related laws and regulations. Employees and applicants shall not be subjected to harassment, intimidation, threats, coercion or discrimination because they have engaged or may engage in:
- Filing a complaint;
- Assisting or participating in an investigation, compliance evaluation, hearing or any other activity related to the administration of Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or any other applicable federal, state or local law requiring equal opportunity, including those requiring equal opportunity for disabled persons;
- Opposing any act or practice made unlawful by Section 503 or any other federal, state, or local law requiring equal opportunity, including those requiring equal opportunity for disabled persons; or
- Exercising any other right protected by Section 503 or any other federal, state, or local law requiring equal opportunity, including those requiring equal opportunity for disabled persons.
