Equal Opportunity Affirmative Action

Equal Opportunity Statement

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is committed to providing an educational and work environment that is conducive to the personal and professional development of each individual student and employee.  It is our firm commitment to ensure that equal employment opportunity, equal treatment, and equal access to programs and activities will be provided to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi's students, employees, prospective employees, and the public.  To achieve this goal, discrimination based on a person's race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, veteran status or genetic information is strictly prohibited as defined by federal law and state statute.  These protections extend to employment and admissions decisions.

“EEO is the Law” Poster

Every employer covered by EEO laws is required to place the “Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law” poster on its premises either electronically or physically. All applicants and employees must have a way to access the poster. Acceptable ways to post it would be on the contractor’s intranet, in an employee breaker, and in an online application portal.

“EEO is the Law” Supplement

OFCCP produced a mandatory supplement to the “EEO is the Law” poster that contractors are required to use until the “EEO is the Law” poster is updated to be consistent with OFCCP’s protections. It, too, must be accessible to all applicants and employees.

Pay Transparency Nondiscrimination Provision

To notify applicants and employees of their rights, subject to certain limitations, to discuss, disclose, or inquire about compensation or compensation information, federal contractors are also required to post the Pay Transparency Nondiscrimination Provision and include it in employee handbooks and manuals. 

Like the other two postings, contractors must place the Pay Transparency Nondiscrimination Provision somewhere that it is conspicuously available to all applicants and employees. Contractors can post this provision either physically on the premises or electronically.

OFCCP provides a formatted version for posting, which includes the OFCCP logo and contact information, as well as an unformatted version for inclusion in employee handbooks and manuals.
