The City of Niagara Falls recognizes the right of all persons to equal employment opportunities and a workplace environment free from discrimination, harassment and retaliation.  It is the City’s policy to provide equal employment opportunity without regard to age, race, creed, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, disability, predisposing genetic characteristics, marital status, military status, or domestic violence victim status. Equal employment opportunity exists when decisions, practices and procedures relating to the workplace are made in a way that provides everyone with a chance to succeed. This includes decisions regarding recruitment, hiring, promotions, terminations and other terms and conditions of employment.

The EEO Office has primary responsibility for administering and enforcing the City’s EEO Policy in coordination with Department of Human Resources, Corporation Counsel staff, the Niagara Falls Human Rights Commission and City department heads. Specifically,

  • Investigating  and resolving employee complaints of discrimination, harassment and/or retaliation;

  • Creating and implementing outreach, training and development programs for the workforce regarding EEO and fair employment practices;
  • Monitoring and ensuring compliance with federal, state and local anti-discrimination laws and the City’s discrimination and harassment policy  and complaint procedures.
