Non-discrimination Policy

The Franklin County Board of Commissioners is an equal opportunity employer and does not make employment decisions in a discriminatory manner based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability that can be reasonably accommodated, or veteran status. The County complies with all applicable federal and state laws, rules, and regulations.

This policy prohibits both discrimination based on any of the above-listed protected characteristics, retaliation against a person who opposes or complains about prohibited conduct, or participates in any way in the complaint, investigation, or reasonable accommodation processes.

This policy also prohibits the denial of reasonable accommodations that do not create undue hardship for disabilities and for religious beliefs.

The Board of Commissioners and its agencies may discipline conduct that violates this policy even if the conduct does not violate a law prohibiting discrimination.
