Statement of GBT’s Equal Employment Opportunity Policy and its Key Principles

As a matter of principle, GBT will not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, creed, national origin, gender or age. GBT will not discriminate against disabled individuals in accordance with the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended. Further, GBT will not discriminate because of age in accordance with the requirements of the Age Discrimination Act and the applicable provisions of State law. Under applicable regulations, GBT provides reasonable accommodations to qualified disabled individuals.

“No person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color, creed, national origin, sex or age be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination in employment under any project, program, or activity funded in whole or in part through financial assistance by the Federal Transit Administration.” — Section 19 of the Urban Mass Transit Act of 1964

It is also the policy of GBT to provide equal employment and economic opportunity at every level without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, ancestry, religion, marital status, sexual orientation physical disability, or age. This policy applies to all phases of employment and economic opportunity, including: recruitment, selection, promotion, termination, layoffs, compensation, training and benefits. In support of this policy, GBT ensures:

  1. Commitment to Equal Employment Opportunity – GBT will ensure that no person will be discriminated against or denied the benefits of any activity, program or employment process in the areas of recruitment, selection, promotion, termination, layoffs, compensation, training or benefits regardless of race, color, religion, age, sex, marital status, national origin or ancestry, sexual orientation or disability.
  2. Commitment to Affirmative Action  GBT is committed to undertake all policies which afford equal opportunities for employment to all qualified persons without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, marital status, national origin or ancestry, sexual orientation or disability and will undertake an Affirmative Action Program, including goals and timetables, in order to overcome the effects of any past discrimination on minorities and women.
  3. Responsibility for Implementation – Every employee has a responsibility to ensure the success of the EEO policy. The responsibility for implementation of the EEO Program resides with GBT’s EEO Officer.
  4. Responsibility of Management Personnel – Managers and supervisors share in this responsibility and will be assigned specific tasks to ensure compliance is achieved. All managers and supervisors are responsible for fostering an atmosphere which is free of discrimination and harassment and are responsible for conducting their individual activities in a manner which values the rights of coworkers.
  5. Right of Applicants and Employees to File Complaints – GBT is committed to making it easy for any applicant or employee to file an EEO complaint alleging discrimination with the EEO Officer or other appropriate official and has included the complaint process in this Plan.
  6. Performance of Management Relative to Success of the Program – Managers and supervisors are advised of their responsibilities to ensure the success of the Program and are evaluated on the success of the EEO program in the same manner as their performance on other goals.
  7. Successful Achievement of EEO Goals – GBT recognizes that the successful achievement of its EEO goals will provide benefits to GBT through fuller utilization and the development of previously underutilized human resources.
