Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended protects applicants and employees from discrimination in hiring, promotion, discharge, pay, fringe benefits, job training, classification, referral, and other aspects of employment, on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), or national origin.  Religious discrimination includes failing to reasonably accommodate an employee's religious practices where the accommodation does not impose undue hardship.  and the West Virginia human rights commission.  Jefferson County also protects those with disabilities, employees age 40 years or older from discrimination, sexual discrimination and genetic discrimination.
All of these federal laws prohibit covered entities such as Jefferson County from retaliating against a person who files a charge of discrimination, participates in discrimination, or otherwise opposes an unlawful employment practice.
If you feel there is an issue with discrimination, please see Jefferson County Policies and Procedures on the County's website to complete an Issue Resolution Form.  Please completed and submit to your Elected Official or the County Administrator.
There are strict time limits for filing charges of employment discrimination.  To preserve the ability of EEOC to act on your behalf and to protect your right to file a private lawsuit, should you ultimately need to, you should contact EEOC promptly when discrimination is suspected.  The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) contact information is:  1-800-669-6820 or 1-800-669-6820 (EEOC TTY number for individuals with hearing impairments).  EEOC field office information is available at www.eeoc.gov or in most telephone directors in the U.S. Government or Federal Government section.  Additional information about EEOC, including information about charge filing is available at www.eeoc.gov and through the West Virginia Human Rights Commission.
