Our Human Resource Department is dedicated to providing the services necessary to build and maintain a positive, proactive organization whose team members will efficiently and effectively support county and district educational programs.

It is MCOE's policy to ensure Equal Employment Opportunity for all persons regardless of race, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, or physical or mental disability. It is the policy of MCOE to continue to make positive efforts to upgrade the recruitment, hiring and promotional practices with the goal of achieving a fully diversified work force in all levels of employment.

Employers must comply with the following laws and regulations in order to meet current equal opportunity regulations. They are:

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, prohibits discrimination in hiring, promotion, discharge, pay, fringe benefits and other aspects of employment, on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Applicants to and employees of most private employers, state and local governments and public or private educational institutions are protected. Employment agencies, labor unions and apprenticeship programs are also covered.

Civil Rights Act of 1991 facilitates proof of disparate impact by protected group members.

Sexual Harassment is a form of sex discrimination and is prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C.2000e, et.seq. Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972, 20 U.S.C. 1681 et.seq. and prohibits unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal physical conduct of a sexual nature, when submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment, is used as the basis for employment decisions, or creates a hostile or offensive working environment. It is also prohibited under California Education Code section 200 et.seq.
In addition to the sex discrimination prohibited by the Title VII of The Civil Rights Act, The Equal Pay Act of 1963, as amended, prohibits sex discrimination in payment of wages to women and men performing substantially equal work in the same establishment. The law covers most private employers, state and local governments, and educational institutions. 

The Age Discrimination In Employment Act of 1967, as amended, prohibits age discrimination and protects applicants and employees age 40 and over from discrimination in hiring, promotion, discharge, pay, fringe benefits and other aspects of employment. The law covers most private employers, state and local governments, educational institutions, employment agencies and labor organizations.

California Administrative Code, Title 2, Division 4, Chapter 5, 8101 et seq provides the employers shall not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment on the basis of race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, or physical handicap.
