It is the policy of the County to provide Equal Employment Opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, amnesty or status as a covered veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local laws. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment; including but not limited to hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation, and training.
Madison County Fiscal Court expressly prohibits any form of unlawful employee harassment based on race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, amnesty, or veteran status.
Drug Free Workplace
Madison County Fiscal Court has a vital interest in maintaining safe, healthy, and efficient working conditions for its employees. Being under the influence of drugs or alcohol on the job may pose serious safety and health risks to the user and all those who work with the user. The possession, use or sale of an illegal drug or alcohol in the workplace may also pose unacceptable risks for safety, health, and efficient operations.
The County gives further notice that:
- The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of a controlled substance in any County work area is prohibited.
- As a condition of employment, employees must abide by the terms of the Drug and Alcohol Free Workplace - Substance Abuse Policy (Addendum 1).
- Any County employee who is convicted of any state or federal criminal drug statutes for drug-related misconduct in the workplace must report the conviction within 5 days thereafter to the Human Resources Director.
Violations of this prohibition will result in administrative sanctions, ranging in severity from formal counseling to termination of employment, immediately or within 30 days, whether or not the violation results in conviction under state for federal criminal drug statutes for misconduct in the workplace. Satisfactory participation in a County-approved drug abuse assistance or rehabilitation program may be required as a condition of continued employment by the Madison County Fiscal Court of all employees who violate this prohibition and are not terminated from employment. See Addendum 1 for full policy.
