Equal Employment Opportunity
The State and its transit agencies must ensure that they comply with the requirements of EEO and that they:
- Do not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, creed, national origin, sex, age or physical or mental disability;
- Take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed and that employees are treated during employment without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, sex, physical or mental disability or age;
- Post in accessible and conspicuous places and make available to employees and applicants for employment notices setting forth an EEO policy.
