Through it’s EEO/Affirmative Action Program in the Office of Civil Rights (OCR), the Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) is committed to ensuring equal employment opportunity, affirmative action and a harassment-free work environment. Additionally, the HDOT will not tolerate retaliation against any person reporting discrimination or harassment.
Federal and State employment laws protect persons from unlawful discrimination based on their race, color, national origin, gender, religion, ancestry, age, marital status, disability, arrest/court record, sexual orientation, or National Guard Participation. Persons breast- feeding or expressing milk are also protected.
OCR is charged with investigating allegations of unlawful discrimination and harassment in HDOT.
If an employee or job applicant believes he or she has been subjected to unlawful discrimination or harassment, he or she may file a complaint with the OCR. An investigation with or without authorization from the complainant may also be conducted to maintain a workplace free of discrimination and harassment.
