What is prohibited discrimination?
It is unlawful to discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of his/her race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion, disability, retaliation, sexual orientation, or parental status in regard to hiring, termination, promotion, compensation, job training, or any other term, condition or privilege of employment.
The Environmental Protection Agency is committed to providing equal employment opportunity; eliminating discrimination in employment; and maintaining an environment that is free from any form of prohibited discrimination. The Agency will provide a prompt, fair and impartial review, and adjudication of any allegation of discrimination. We are committed to equal employment opportunity principles and practices in all of our management decisions and personnel practices.
