Anti-Discrimination Policy

Non-Discrimination in Employment

TOGETHER! agrees that it shall not discriminate against any employee or applicant on the grounds of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, age, sex, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, or the presence of any disability; provided that the prohibition against discrimination in employment because of disability shall not apply if the particular disability prevents the performance of the essential functions required of the position.

 

As a subrecipient for City of Olympia contracts, we also comply with the City of Olympia's Non-Discrimination in Delivery of City Services ordinance:

 

"TOGETHER! will not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, disability or other handicap, age, marital/familial status, or status with regard to public assistance. TOGETHER! will take affirmative action to ensure that all employment practices are free from such discrimination. Such employment practices include, but are not limited to, the following: hiring, upgrading, demotion, transfer, recruitment or recruitment advertising, lay off, termination, rates of pay or other forms of compensation, and selection for training including apprenticeship."

 

Non-Discrimination in Client Services

TOGETHER! shall not, on the grounds of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, age, sex, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, or the presence of any disability:

Deny an individual any services or other benefits;

Provide any service(s) or other benefit(s) to an individual which are different, or are provided in a different manner, from those provided to others;

Subject an individual to segregation or separate treatment in any manner related to his/her receipt of any service(s) or other benefits.

 

TOGETHER! shall not deny any individual an opportunity to participate in any program or provision of service(s), or afford an opportunity to do so, which is different from that afforded others.

 

TOGETHER!, in determining (a) the types of services or other benefits to be provided, or (b) the class of individuals to whom, or the situation in which, such services or other benefits will be provided, or (c) the class of individuals to be afforded an opportunity to participate in any service(s) or other benefits, will not utilize criteria or methods of administration which have the effect of subjecting individuals to discrimination because of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, creed, marital status, age, Vietnam era or disabled veteran status, or the presence of any disability, or have the effect of defeating or substantially impairing accomplishment of the objectives of any service contract in respect to individuals of a particular race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, national origin, creed, marital status, age, Vietnam era or disabled veteran status, or the presence of any disability.

 

If TOGETHER! authorizes assignment and/or subcontracting, said assignment or subcontract shall include appropriate safeguards against discrimination in client services binding upon each agency or subcontractor. TOGETHER! shall take such action as may be required to ensure full compliance with the provision of this clause, including sanctions for non-compliance.
