The National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE) Education Foundation shall follow the spirit and intent of all federal, state and local employment law and is committed to equal employment opportunity. To that end, the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of NAPE will not discriminate against any employee or applicant in a manner that violates the law. NAPE is committed to providing equal opportunity for all employees and applicants without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, political affiliation, personal appearance, family responsibilities, matriculation or any other characteristic protected under federal, state or local law. Each person is evaluated on the basis of personal skill and merit. NAPE’s policy regarding equal employment opportunity applies to all aspects of employment, including recruitment, hiring, job assignments, promotions, working conditions, scheduling, benefits, wage and salary administration, disciplinary action, termination, and social, educational and recreational programs. The Chief Executive Officer shall act as the responsible agent in the full implementation of the Equal Employment Opportunity policy.
NAPE will not tolerate any form of unlawful discrimination. All employees are expected to cooperate fully in implementing this policy. In particular, any employee who believes that any other employee of NAPE may have violated the Equal Employment Opportunity Policy should report the possible violation to the Chief Executive Officer.
If NAPE determines that a violation of this policy has occurred, it will take appropriate disciplinary action against the offending party, which can include counseling, warnings, suspensions and termination. Employees who report, in good faith, violations of this policy and employees who cooperate with investigations into alleged violations of this policy will not be subject to retaliation. Upon completion of the investigation, NAPE will inform the employee who made the complaint of the results of the investigation.
NAPE is also committed to complying fully with applicable disability discrimination laws and ensuring that equal opportunity in employment exists at NAPE for qualified persons with disabilities. All employment practices and activities are conducted on a non-discriminatory basis. Reasonable accommodations will be available to all qualified employees with disabilities, upon request, so long as the potential accommodation does not create an undue hardship on NAPE. Employees who believe that they may require an accommodation should discuss these needs with the Chief Executive Officer.
