Affirmative Action / Equal Employment Opportunity 

Affirmative Action

Executive Order 11246, as amended, prohibits federal contractors from discriminating in employment decisions on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

Equal Employment Opportunity

Tennessee Tech will not discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is illegal to retaliate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit.

The laws apply to all types of work situations, including hiring, firing, promotions, harassment, training, wages, and benefits.

The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding affirmative action and equal employment opportunities at Tennessee Tech:
