Equal Employment/Affirmative Action

Equal Employment Opportunity & Affirmative Action Policy Statement

It is the policy of the Jefferson Science Associates, LLC (JSA) and the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) to maintain a firm commitment to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. To ensure that this commitment is carried out in practice, JSA/Jefferson Lab shall:

The Chief Operating Officer is the Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Officer for JSA/Jefferson Lab. The Chief Operating Officer is assisted by the Human Resources Manager, who holds overall responsibility for monitoring all personnel actions within the organization for compliance with Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action policies and the Affirmative Action Plan. The Employment Manager is designated as the Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Coordinator and is responsible for preparing the Affirmation Action Plan and coordinating actions designed to meet the goals and objectives of the Plan with Associate Directors/Office Heads, managers, and supervisors.

In order to ensure that the Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action policy is fully implemented within the spirit and in the interest of governing laws and regulations, we expect all Associate Directors/Office Heads, managers and supervisors to: be familiar with, support fully, and assume responsibility for following these policies in all personnel actions; inform employees and applicants of Jefferson Lab's Equal Employment Opportunity Policy; and assist in the identification of problem areas, and establishment of goals for increased minority and female hiring, when these groups are found to be underutilized.

JSA/Jefferson Lab's policy on Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action is included in the Administrative Manual, available on the JLab Intranet. Copies of the Affirmative Action Plans are available in each division office and Human Resources. We encourage all employees to become familiar with the contents of these documents and to participate actively in furthering the JSA/Jefferson Lab equal opportunity and affirmative action programs.
