Policy Statement
The City of Fresno actively implements all federal, state, local and departmental Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity laws, executive orders, regulations, rules, directives, policies and plans. This commitment extends to all aspects of City’s personnel management policies and practices.

Our organization prohibits discrimination and harassment, on the basis of a protected status: race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation marital status, pregnancy, mental disability, physical disability, medical condition and covered veteran status. Retaliation against individuals for complaining about these proscribed conduct, opposing such conduct, or participating in an investigation or proceeding involving such conduct is prohibited.

Equal Opportunity in Employment
Our organization is committed to providing equal employment opportunity for all persons in all terms, conditions, and privileges of employment, including but not limited to: position description development, examination, salary and wages, reclassification, leave accounting and temporary assignment, disciplinary action, reinstatement, recruitment, selection, transfer, promotion, training, compensation, benefits, layoff, termination, retention, certification, testing and other terms and conditions of employment.

Accommodations for Persons with Disabilities
To ensure equal access to employment and services, the City evaluates each request for accommodation and
provides appropriate reasonable accommodations, unless doing so would impose an undue hardship on the
City of Fresno. What constitutes a reasonable accommodation is to be determined on a case by case basis.

Examples are:

Accommodations for employees: acquiring or modifying equipment; offering alternative work schedules or employment; or modifying work procedures without compromising or altering the essential functions of the job.

Accommodations for an applicant: offering alternative testing procedures; providing informational materials in alternative media; and providing interpreters for deaf or hearing/speech impaired persons.

Employees or applicants requiring reasonable accommodation should contact the City of Fresno Personnel Services Department at (559) 621-6950.
