Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action
2018 Policy Statement

Rock Region Metropolitan Transit Authority (METRO) management and staff pledge their continued support to the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) program on equal employment opportunity (EEO) affecting employment practices, to include recruitment, selection, promotions, terminations, transfers, layoffs, compensation, training, benefits, and other terms and conditions as set forth under the requirements of Circular 4704.1A; revised on April 20, 2017.

METRO is firmly committed to a policy of equal employment opportunity and will administer its personnel policies and conduct its employment practices in a manner that results in treatment based on merit, experience and other work related criteria, without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), age, genetic information, disability, veteran status, or other protected class.

METRO is further committed to undertake an affirmative action program, including recommended goals and timetables, to effectively advance program objectives.

METRO will not tolerate the harassing of any individuals with regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), age, genetic information, disability, veteran status, or other protected class. Such conduct is cause for disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.

However, management personnel at every level shares in the responsibility for promoting equal employment opportunity and ensuring requisite compliance. Officials, managers and supervisors will be evaluated on the efforts they expend to insure the success of the EEO program the same as their performance on other organizational goals.

Any applicant or employee who believes they have been subject to discrimination has the right to file a complaint with the EEO Officer and/or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission located at 820 S Louisiana Street #200 in Little Rock.

Successful achievement of EEO goals will provide benefits to recipients, subrecipients, and contractors through fuller utilization and development of previously underutilized human resources.
