Policies

Equal Opportunity Employer

The Utah State University Research Foundation (USURF) is deeply committed to providing an equal opportunity climate and an environment free from discrimination and harassment. In accordance with established laws, the Foundation prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or veteran's status. In addition, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation for employees in all aspects of employment is prohibited.

Affirmative Action

Affirmative Action is designed to redress imbalances of minorities and women in the workforce. US Presidential Executive Order 11246 (as amended) requires federal contractors to take "affirmative" steps to recruit, hire and advance minorities and women when they are underrepresented and are qualified and available in the labor force. USURF proactively undertakes good faith efforts to reach affirmative action goals.

While affirmative action goals are not established for veterans or people with disabilities, the Foundation undertakes affirmative steps to recruit, hire and advance people with disabilities and veterans, as required by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Vietnam Era Veteran's Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974.

Employees with Disabilities

Utah State University Research Foundation is committed to equal opportunity and non-discrimination as outlined in the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Foundation ensures full right of access for persons with disabilities to all terms and conditions of employment, services, programs and activities. Employees and candidates for employment will be treated on the basis of their ability to perform essential job functions, with or without reasonable accommodations.
