It is a requirement that anyone doing business with the City must adopt and implement a nondiscriminatory policy in employment of all workers, particularly women and minorities.
The HRC and the City’s Purchasing Division work jointly to ensure that these companies have an approved Affirmative Action / Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Plan on file with the HRC.
In order to receive contracts from the City of Dayton, contractors and vendors must have a policy in place and in practice which meets the following standards:
- The contractor or vendor shall not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, religion, sex, ancestry, national origin, place of birth, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
- The contractor or vendor shall take affirmative action in accordance with the terms outlined in its proposal and the provisions of this contract to ensure that applicants are employed, and that employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, color, religion, sex, ancestry, national origin, place of birth, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
- Such action shall include, but not be limited to, the following: employment, upgrading demotion or transfer; recruitment or recruitment advertising; layoff or termination; rates of pay or other forms of compensation; and selection for training, including apprenticeship.
- The contractor or vendor agrees to post in conspicuous places, available to employees and applicants, notices to be provided by the city setting forth the provisions of the nondiscrimination clauses.
