Equal Employment Opportunity Program FY 2019 - 2020
Montebello Bus Lines (MBL) is committed to building and maintaining a workforce that accurately reflects the diversity of the public it serves. It is MBL’s policy to provide equal employment opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), age, genetic information, disability, veteran status, or other protected class.
MBL’s Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) policy applies to all personnel policies and employment practices, to ensure that all employment actions, including but not limited to recruitment or recruitment advertising, hiring, upgrading, selection for training, promotion, transfer, demotion, layoff, termination, rates of pay or other forms of compensation, and treatment of employees will be administered in conformance with MBL’s EEO policy.
MBL has implemented a written EEO Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Program that sets forth the EEO policies, practices, and procedures, inclusive of goals and timetables, to which MBL is committed.
As MBL’s City Manager, I maintain overall responsibility and accountability for MBL’s compliance with its EEO Policy and Program. To ensure day-to-day management, including program preparation, monitoring, and complaint investigation, I have appointed Nicholas T. Razo, Director of Human Resources, as MBL’s EEO Officer. Nicholas T. Razo will report directly to me and acts with my authority with all levels of management, labor unions, and employees. Furthermore, all management personnel at every level share in the responsibility for promoting a work environment which is free of discrimination. MBL evaluates the performance of managers, supervisors, and others based on the success of the EEO Program in the same manner that MBL evaluates their performance in other MBL programs.
All applicants and employees have the right to file complaints (both written and verbal) of discrimination with MBL’s EEO Officer:
Nicholas T. Razo
Director of Human Resources
or in person at 400 South Taylor Avenue, Montebello, California, 90640.
The EEO Officer, once notified of the complaint, will conduct an investigation concerning the alleged discrimination. Retaliation against an individual who files a charge or complaint of discrimination or participates in an employment discrimination proceeding or similar protected activity is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated.
MBL has made the EEO Program available for inspection by any employee or applicant for employment upon request and provides reasonable accommodations to applicants and employees who need them because of a disability or to practice or observe their religion, absent undue hardship.
MBL welcomes any comments or suggestions that would further improve the effectiveness of MBL’s EEO Policy and Program. It is by continuing MBL’s commitment to the successful achievement of MBL’s EEO goals that MBL can receive the benefits of a diverse and equitable workplace.
