Equal Employment Opportunity

At the City of Grand Junction, we proudly operate as an Equal Opportunity Employer, purposely building an inclusive workforce representative of various cultures, perspectives, and experiences. We believe in respect for all and do not discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, gender identification, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, and/or genetic information. 

If you have questions or need assistance or accommodation due to a disability, please contact our Human Resources office at 970-244-1512.

Any individual employed by the city, county, state, or private office employing over 15 employees may be covered by the laws protecting individuals from discrimination. Specifically, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), District Office, handles the age discrimination and employment act of 1967; Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; and the equal pay based on equal work act of 1963. These three federal acts cover areas prohibiting discrimination in employment based on race, sex, age, religion, national origin and color. Furthermore, equal pay for equal work and age discrimination are also covered.

If you feel you have been discriminated against in employment, call the EEOC, District Office so they can provide counseling and explain the procedures to file a complaint. Their number is 1-800-669-4000.
