Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Office

Hamilton County maintains an equal employment opportunity (EEO) policy and does not discriminate in hiring practices or terms and conditions of employment. Human resource decisions, actions and conditions affecting employees, including, but not limited to assignment, transfer, promotion and compensation are governed by the principles of equal opportunity.


Discrimination against any person in recruitment, examination, appointment, training, promotion, retention, discipline or any other aspect of human resource administration because of political or religious opinions or affiliations or because of race, national origin or other non-merit factors is prohibited. Discrimination on the basis of age or sex or mental/physical disability will be prohibited except where specific age or sex or mental/physical requirements constitute a bona fide occupational qualification necessary to proper and efficient administration.


Hamilton County Government's Equal Employment Opportunity Plan & Utilization Report (PDF Format) investigates the current diversity of employees of the County.


The County Equal Employment Opportunity Officer has responsibility for implementing and monitoring of the County’s equal employment opportunity policy and affirmative action plan. The EEO Officer also investigates charges of unlawful discrimination and harassment brought by County employees or citizens.
