TO APPLICANT: We appreciate your interest in our organization. Thank you for taking time to complete this application. Federal and State Law prohibit discrimination in employment because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or physical handicap. Federal law also prohibits other types of discrimination such as citizenship, veteran status, attainment of benefits, and participation in union activities. State Law and local municipality ordinances also prohibit some or all of the above types of discrimination as well as some additional types including, but not limited to discrimination based upon ancestry, marital status or unfavorable discharge from military service. This list, however, is not exhaustive of the grounds on which discrimination is prohibited.
