Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action Policy

It is the intent of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) to afford equal employment opportunity for all qualified persons regardless of race, color, religion, ancestry, age, sex, national origin, marital status, veteran’s status, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, family responsibilities, genetic status, or any other characteristic protected by law. This governs all aspects of employment including recruitment, selection, compensation, benefits, classification, job assignments, transfer, promotion, training and development, demotion, layoff, termination, and all other actions affecting employment except where a bona fide occupational qualification exists. All employees are expected to carry out their responsibilities to assure that equal employment opportunity is available to all. In addition, the FNIH seeks to do business with organizations that encourage equal employment opportunity.

As part of its equal employment opportunity commitment, the FNIH will also take affirmative action as called for by applicable laws and Executive Orders to ensure that minorities, females, protected veterans, and qualified disabled persons are introduced into its workforce and considered for promotional opportunities. The FNIH will provide reasonable accommodation to the known physical or mental limitations of qualified individuals with disabilities unless such accommodation would impose an undue hardship on the conduct of its business.

FNIH also prohibits retaliation against employees and applicants for filing a complaint, opposing any discriminatory act or practice, assisting or participating in any manner in a review, investigation, or hearing regarding FNIH employment practices, or otherwise seeking to exercise their legal rights under any Federal, State, or local law requiring equal employment opportunity. Prohibited retaliation includes, but is not limited to harassment, intimidation, threats, coercion, or other adverse actions that might reasonably dissuade someone from asserting their rights.

The commitments above will be periodically brought to the attention of supervisors. All employees are expected to recognize these commitments and cooperate with their implementation.

An Equal Employment Opportunity Manager (currently the Human Resources Office) has been assigned to implement and monitor these commitments.
