Brookhaven National Laboratory's Equal Opportunity &
Affirmative Action Policy Statement
Our mission to do world-class science is
enhanced by having a diverse workforce. Fair treatment and equal opportunity for
all employees in an environment free from harassment should be regarded as
the Laboratory’s way of doing business. As Director of Brookhaven National
Laboratory (BNL), I reaffirm the Laboratory’s commitment to Equal Employment
Opportunity and Affirmative Action.
It is BNL's policy to:
Provide equal employment opportunities
(EEO) to all applicants.
Be proactive in making equal opportunity
(EO) at BNL a reality. This includes promotions, pay equity and salary
Ensure that every
employment decision is free from illegal discrimination and complies
with laws prohibiting discrimination as to race, color, religion,
gender, national origin, marital status, citizenship, age, disability,
veteran status, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic
protected by law or executive order.
Make reasonable accommodations for
qualified employees with disabilities.
Advise employees of their rights to
refer violation of these policies to their supervisor, Human Resources,
any senior manager or directly to the Diversity Office.
no person engages in retaliatory behavior, or discriminates against any
individual who has filed a
complaint, or assists in an investigation, compliance review, hearing or other activity
related to the administration of these policies.
With your help, we can continue to be proud
of the inclusive environment at the Laboratory. We will recognize
individual differences, and utilize these differences, as well as what we
have in common, to continue the Laboratory’s reputation as a world-class
institution and an exemplary workplace.
Overall, responsibility for directing and
implementing these policies has been assigned to Shirley Kendall, Diversity
Office Manager, 631-344-3318. Your feedback and contributions are always
