Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Policy
Kern River promotes equal employment opportunities and provides family medical leave in accordance with all local, state and federal laws and regulations governing personnel activities.
EEO is the Law. It is Kern River's policy to provide and promote equal employment opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment in accordance with all local, state and federal laws and regulations governing personnel activities. In accordance with federal guidelines, Kern River is committed to a program of affirmative action for work sites in the United States.
If any applicant or employee believes they have been discriminated against or desires further information or assistance, they should immediately contact their supervisor or contact Human Resources at 801-937-6340.
Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Policy
Kern River's Family Medical Leave Policy complies with all applicable federal and state laws. In general, family medical leave will be administered according to the Family Medical Leave Act of 1993 and the National Defense Authorization Act of 2008. The administration of this policy complies with applicable state law where such state law provides a greater benefit. FMLA does not affect any federal or state law prohibiting discrimination or supersede any state or local law that provides greater family or medical leave rights.
For a summary of employee rights and responsibilities and military leave entitlements under FMLA and the National Defense Authorization Act, review Appendix C-WH Publication 1420 provided by the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor.
