EEO means providing individuals with equal access to all phases of the employment process regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status. EEO shall apply to all terms, conditions, and privileges of employment, including hiring, probation, testing, training and development, promotion, transfer, compensation, benefits, educational assistance, discipline, termination, layoffs, social, cultural and recreational programs, and retirement. AA means taking positive efforts to recruit, employ, retain and advance in employment qualified women, people of color, individuals with disabilities and veterans in order to overcome effects of past discrimination.
UCB does not discriminate in any condition of employment on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status. UCB is committed to making employment decisions in all job titles based on valid job requirements, without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.
