The Daviess County Fiscal Court is an Equal Opportunity Employer and provides equal opportunity to all its employees and applicants for employment and prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, political affiliation, age, disability, marital status, sex (wages), genetics, or disabled, recently separated, other protected, and armed forces service medal veterans in its hiring or employment practices.
The County promotes equal opportunity in matters of hiring, promotion, transfer, compensation, benefits, and all other terms, privileges and conditions of employment. The County insures that equal opportunities are available on the basis of individual merit and encourages all persons to seek employment and to strive for advancement on this basis.
The County will not ask a job applicant about the existence, nature, or severity of a disability. Applicants may be asked about their ability to perform specific job functions. Medical examinations or inquiries may be made, but only after a conditional offer of employment is made and only if required of all applicants for the position.
The County will make reasonable accommodations for the known physical or mental limitations of a qualified applicant or employee with a disability upon request unless the accommodation would cause an undue hardship on the operation of the County’s business. If an applicant or an employee requests a reasonable accommodation and the individual’s disability and need for the accommodation are not readily apparent or otherwise known, the County may ask the individual for information necessary to determine if the individual has a disability-related need for the accommodation.
The County will maintain any employee’s medical records separate from personnel files and keep them confidential.
The County will make an individualized assessment of whether a qualified individual with a disability meets selection criteria for employment decisions. To the extent the County’s selection criteria have the effect of disqualifying an individual because of disability, those criteria will be job-related and consistent with business necessity.
