Employment Practices


Community Action Opportunities provides equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or status as a Vietnam-era or special disabled veteran in accordance with applicable federal laws. We comply with applicable state and local laws that govern nondiscrimination in employment in all agency locations. We apply this policy to all terms and conditions of employment, including, but not limited to, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, lay-off, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation and training.

To further the principle of equal employment opportunity for all, we have an Affirmative Action policy for minorities and women, individuals with disabilities, and Vietnam-era and special disabled veterans. We have a diverse workforce and welcome applicants who contribute to, enhance and value diversity.

We use a classification and pay plan to describe the behaviors, knowledge, skills and abilities required for each job and determine the appropriate salary range for this work. We review and update our plan and pay ranges annually, in order to ensure that we offer fair and competitive compensation packages that attract and retain qualified, high-performing employees.

Our excellent benefit package is available to all eligible regular full-time employees and includes:

• Medical, vision and dental coverage.
• Prescription drugs card.
• Disability and life insurance.
• Retirement Benefits.
• Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
• Holiday, vacation and sick leave.
• Family Medical Leave.
• Other leave for specific needs.
• Job-related education benefits.

We screen all applicants, require background checks on final candidates and are a Drug-Free Work Place.
