    California Northstate University is an equal opportunity employer and makes employment decisions on the basis of merit. We want to have the best available persons in every job. University policy prohibits unlawful discrimination based on race, color, creed, gender

    medical condition (including cancer or a record or history of cancer, and genetic characteristics), sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding or related medical condition), genetic

It also prohibits unlawful discrimination based on the perception that anyone has any of those characteristics, or is associated with a person who has or is perceived as having any of those characteristics.

    Pay discrimination between employees of the opposite sex performing substantially similar work, as defined by the California Fair Pay Act and federal law, is prohibited. Pay differentials may be valid in certain situations defined by law. Employees will not be retaliated against for inquiring about or discussing wages. However, California Northstate University is not obligated to disclose the wages of its employees, and encourages employees to treat wages as a matter of privacy.

    Discrimination can also include failing to reasonably accommodate religious practices or qualified individuals with disabilities where the accommodation does not pose an undue hardship.

    All such discrimination is unlawful.

    The University is committed to compliance with all applicable laws providing equal employment opportunities. This commitment applies to all persons involved in University operations. The University prohibits unlawful discrimination against any job applicant, employee or unpaid intern by any employee of the University, including supervisors and coworkers.

    If you believe you have been subjected to any form of unlawful discrimination, submit a complaint to your supervisor or Human Resources.

If you need assistance with your complaint, or if you prefer to make a complaint in person, contact Human Resources. The University will immediately undertake an effective, thorough, and objective investigation and attempt to resolve the situation.

    If the University determines that unlawful discrimination has occurred, effective remedial action will be taken commensurate with the severity of the offense. Appropriate action also will be taken to deter any future discrimination.

    To comply with applicable laws ensuring equal employment opportunities to qualified individuals with a disability, the University will make reasonable accommodations for the known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified individual with a disability who is an applicant or an employee unless undue hardship would result. Any job applicant or employee who requires an accommodation in order to perform the essential functions of the job should contact Human Resources and discuss the need for an accommodation. The University will engage in an interactive process with the employee to identify possible accommodations, if any, which will help the applicant or employee perform the job.

    An applicant, employee or unpaid intern who requires an accommodation of a religious belief or practice (including religious dress and grooming practices, such as religious clothing or hairstyles) should also contact Human Resources and discuss the need for an accommodation. If the accommodation is reasonable and will not impose an undue hardship, the University will make the accommodation.

    The University will not retaliate against you for bringing a complaint of discrimination, participating in the investigation of any complaint, or requesting a reasonable accommodation, and will not knowingly tolerate or permit retaliation by management, employees or co-workers.
