  • (a) The overall employment policy of the city shall include:

    (1) There shall be no illegal discrimination in employment, employment opportunities or job actions on the basis of race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, legally recognized disability, political affiliation, or marital status unless one (1) or more of the above constitute a bona fide occupational qualification within the meaning of the law. No job applicant or present employee will be illegally discriminated against or given preference because of any of the above characteristics, unless otherwise required by law.

    (3) The city will take affirmative recruitment actions to expand employment opportunities for groups that are underutilized in the city workforce, but not in any way which violates applicable law.
