UMBC provides equal employment opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, national origin, ethnic background, ancestry, sex, disability, age, marital status, sexual orientation, veteran’s status, or religion, in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local laws governing non-discrimination in employment. This practice of non-discrimination applies to all terms and conditions of employment including, but not limited to, hiring, placement, promotion, demotion, discipline, termination, lay-off, recall, transfers, leaves of absence, compensation, benefits, and training. As such, the UMBC Career Center strives to work solely with employers that abide by such standards.
The UMBC Career Center provides job placement related services to students and alumni. UMBC is not responsible for employers’ representations or guarantees with regard to job postings, nor is it responsible for wages, working conditions, safety, or other work-related issues that may arise after placement with an employer. If an individual believes that they are being discriminated against in the workplace, they should use the employer’s internal discrimination complaint process and/or consult private legal counsel. There may also be government agencies that will receive such complaints.
