    Additional Information

    Equal Employment Opportunity Statement

    It is the policy of the Grandwood Park Park District, in accordance with state and federal law, to provide equal employment opportunities to all qualified persons.  All personnel policies and decisions pertaining to hire promotion, transfer, layoff, rates of pay, discipline, discharge, and other terms and conditions of employment are made and executed without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, citizenship status, ancestry, age marital status, military status, physical or mental disability unrelated to a persons ability to perform the essential functions of his or her job, association with a person with a disability, of unfavorable discharge from the army.


    The District realizes that the issue of smoking and/or tobacco use within the workplace and public facilities has been of growing national concern. The District believes smoking/tobacco use in the proximity of youth and adults engaging in or watching recreational activities whether indoors or outside on District owned or operated facilities is detrimental to their health and can be offensive to those at such locations.
    Therefore, in the best interest of employees, program participants, guests and visitors of the District, and to create a healthy environment in which to work and recreate, smoking and/or tobacco use of any kind will not be allowed on any District property or any District vehicle.
    The District also reserves the right to enact more restrictive ordinances when in accordance with local, state, or federal law.

    The Park District is committed to a work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. Each individual has the right to work in a professional atmosphere that prohibits discriminatory practices, including sexual harassment.

    It is the responsibility of each and every employee, officer, official, park commissioner, and agent. Therefore, the Park District expects that all relationships among persons in the workplace, including relationships with members of the public, volunteers, vendors of the Park District, as well as anyone using the Park District’s facilities, will be business-like and free of bias, prejudice and harassment. The Park District will not tolerate sexual harassment of or by any of its employees and elected officials. Actions, words, jokes, or comments based on an individual’s sex, sexual identity or orientation, civil union partnership, or any other form of sex discrimination or harassment will not be tolerated.

    This policy should not, and may not, be used as a basis for excluding or separating individuals of a particular gender, sexual orientation, civil union partnership, or any other protected characteristic, from participating in business or work-related social activities or discussions in order to avoid allegations of harassment. The law and policies of the Park District prohibit disparate treatment on the basis of race, religion, age, national origin, sex, sexual identity or orientation, civil union partnership, or any other protected characteristic, with regard to terms, conditions, privileges and prerequisites of employment. The prohibition against sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation are intended to complement and further these policies, not to form the basis of an exception to them.

    The complete policy is included in the Employee Handbook.
