OTS's Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) policy applies to all areas of
employment actions, including but not limited to, recruitment, hiring, selection
for training, promotion, transfer, demotion, layoff, termination, rates of pay
or other forms of compensation.
An employee or job applicant who believes that he/she has experienced employment
discrimination has the right to file a complaint with OTS's EEO Officer, the
Department of Transportation Services' EEO Officer or the Federal Transit
Administration's Office of Civil Rights.
Retaliation against an individual who files a charge or complaint of
discrimination, participates in an employment discrimination proceeding (such as
an investigation or lawsuit), or otherwise engages in protected activity is
strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated.
OTS is committed to providing reasonable accommodation to applicants and employees who need them because of a disability or to practice or observe their religion, absent due hardship.
As OTS's President/General Manager, I maintain overall responsibility and
accountability for OTS's compliance with its EEO Policy and Program.
To ensure day-to-day management,
including program preparation, monitoring, and complaint investigation, I have
appointed the Civil Rights Compliance Officer, Ms. Angela K. Lo, PHR, SHRM-CP
or phone: 808-768-9455), as OTS's EEO Officer.
Ms. Lo will report directly to me and acts with my authority in all
matters regarding EEO with all levels of management, labor unions, and
All OTS executives, management, and supervisory personnel, however, share in the
responsibility for implementing and monitoring OTS's EEO Policy and Program
within their respective areas and will be assigned specific tasks to ensure
compliance is achieved. OTS will
evaluate its managers' and supervisors' performance on their successful
implementation of OTS's policies and procedures, in the same way OTS assesses
their performance regarding other organizational goals.
OTS is committed to undertaking and developing a written nondiscrimination program that sets forth the policies, practices and procedures, with goals and timelines, to which the agency is committed and make the EEO Program available for inspection by any employee or applicant for employment upon request.
