Gallaudet University Human Resources Services serves as the authoritative source for all matters related to staff employment, including, but not limited to, recruitment/selection procedures, new employee orientation, promotions, reclassifications, transfers, salary administration, demotions, layoffs, and terminations. Employee selection is the responsibility of the supervisor; however, all selection decisions must be approved by the unit administrator, senior administrator, and Director of Equal Opportunity Programs.
The procedures in this policy are intended to provide for equitable employment practices. Gallaudet University is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on any unlawful basis. All individuals engaged in staff employment activities should be thoroughly familiar with personnel procedures and should take affirmative action to provide fair and equal opportunities for the employment and advancement of deaf and hard of hearing individuals, disabled individuals, members of traditionally underrepresented groups, women, and veterans. The Director of Equal Opportunity Programs has the authority to investigate and disapprove a selection decision if any evidence of discrimination or procedural violation exists.
