Non Discrimination/Complaint Procedure
The leaders within Sarasota County Government intend for the organization to become an “employer of choice” for highly motivated and talented employees and job candidates. It is the desire of our leaders for employees, job applicants, other stakeholders, and the public to find the county’s work culture and environment professional, respectful, supportive and free of hostile, intimidating and/or offensive acts, behavior, and comments.
Any job applicant or employee who believes he or she has been unlawfully discriminated against because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability or believes he or she has been harassed, is encouraged to bring their concerns to the county’s attention immediately.
Concerns and/or allegations such as these may be filed as complaints with one of the following persons:
- Immediate supervisor of the employee who allegedly committed the offense.
- Next higher level manager above the affected immediate supervisor.
- General manager of Human Resources.
- Workforce Diversity coordinator.
Complaints of unlawful discrimination and/or harassment, including sexual harassment, should be filed and will be investigated in accordance with the county’s internal Equal Employment Opportunity Discrimination and (Sexual) Harassment Complaint Procedure.
