Governor’s Policy on Fairness & Equity in the Workplace
Executive Directive Number One represents the Governor’s policy regarding fairness and equity in state employment. In addition to prohibiting illegal discriminatory practices in the workplace, “civility, fair treatment, and mutual respect shall be the standard of conduct expected in state government. Allegations of any violation of law or this standard shall be brought promptly to the attention of the Director of the Department of Human Resource Management for review and corrective action.” Allegations of illegal discrimination as enumerated by Executive Order Number Six (2010) and Policy No. 2.05 – Equal Employment Opportunity will be investigated.
