Equal Opportunity

Home Forward recognizes the right of all employees and job applicants to equal opportunity in all aspects of the employment relationship, from hiring through separation from employment.

Home Forward is committed to providing equal employment opportunities to all persons regardless of race, color, religion, ancestry, sex, national origin, marital or veteran status, physical or mental disabilty, on-the-job injuries, age, sexual orientation, source of incme, or any other legally protected status, unless it is a bona fide occupational requirement reasonably necessary to the operation of our business.

Our goal is to employ minorities in our work force to a degree that is at least comparable to the representation of minorities in the available qualified work force for a particular job within the Portland metropolitan area.

Home Forward will attempt to recruit needed personnel from minority groups and low-income program participants by, among other things:

  • Using advertising and promotional programs making use of media oriented toward those focus groups; and
  • Conducting, as needed, special visits to such target groups to directly communicate with potential job applicants.

Home Forward will seek to ensure that any applicant testing is job-related and fully complies with all applicable legal requirements.
