As a recipient of federal funds, Allen County is required to conform to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, and all related statutes, regulations, directives, and executive orders, which provide that no person shall be excluded from participation in, denied benefits of, or subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving financial assistance from the Federal Government on the grounds of race, color, national origin, gender, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, genetic information, religion, low income status, or limited English proficiency.

Allen County further is an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer.

This policy applies to all employment actions including, but not limited to, recruiting, hiring, promoting, transferring, demoting, downsizing, terminating, and determining rates of pay or other forms of compensation.
