EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY POLICY
FONA believes that one of the greatest strengths of Washington D.C. is the rich diversity of its citizens. FONA seeks to recognize and support that diversity. FONA is an equal opportunity employer, and its employment practices and policies are applicable to all employees without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin or ancestry, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, pregnancy, child birth or related medical conditions, family responsibilities, genetic information, political affiliation, matriculation, veteran status, union affiliation, disability, or any other legally-protected characteristic in accordance with federal or local law (the “Protected Categories”).
FONA is firmly committed to complying with all applicable federal and local legislation designed to ensure equal employment opportunities to persons with disabilities. FONA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability with regard to all employment practices or terms, conditions and privileges of employment. Consistent with this policy and applicable law, upon an employee’s request, FONA will make reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with known disabilities who are able to perform the essential functions of the job unless doing so would result in an undue hardship to the organization. This policy governs all aspects of employment, including selection, job assignments, compensation, discipline, termination, and access to benefits and training.
In addition, upon request and consistent with its obligations under applicable law, FONA will provide reasonable accommodations for an employee whose ability to perform the essential functions of the employee’s job are affected by pregnancy, childbirth, related medical conditions, or breastfeeding. If you feel that you have need for an accommodation, please provide the request in writing to your supervisor, who will seek additional appropriate information in accordance with applicable law.
