Equal Opportunity Statement

UnityPoint Health - Meriter fully supports the concepts of Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action and will continue to do so.  It is UnityPoint Health - Meriter's policy to effect all personnel transactions including, but not limited to, recruitment and employment, promotion, demotion, transfer, compensation, benefits, selection for company sponsored training, tuition assistance, social or recreation programs without discrimination to ensure equal treatment of employees regardless of sex (gender), race, religion, color, creed, national origin or ancestry, age, disability, HIV status, genetic identity, gender identity or expression, marital status, familial status, source of income, arrest record or conviction record, less than honorable military discharge, veteran status, military participation (current or past), credit history, social security, physical appearance, sexual orientation, domestic partner status, unemployment status, political beliefs, or fact that such person is a student as defined in the City of Madison Equal Opportunities Ordinance. 

To further this policy, UnityPoint Health - Meriter has established Affirmative Action Programs for minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and veterans in compliance with United States Department of Labor Relations; s.16.765 Wisconsin Statutes and an Affirmative Action Plan in compliance with Madison General Ordinance Sections 3.23 and 3.58 of the City of Madison Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Ordinance.  We encourage protected individuals to assist in recruitment by referring prospective candidates for employment to the organization. 

 UnityPoint Health - Meriter's goal is to reach a balance of the work force which reflects the makeup of our relevant labor market.  All personnel who are responsible for hiring and promoting employees and for the development and implementation for programs or activities are charged to support this program. Copies of these programs/plans are available for review in the Human Resources Department (Human Resources hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday at UnityPoint Health - Meriter's Rimrock Road location). 

For further information or questions, please contact Shana M. Wuebben, Equal Employment Opportunity Officer (608) 417-6053 or David Witkowski, Equal Employment Opportunity Coordinator (608) 417-6536.  They have the responsibility for maintaining an audit and preparing reports relating to our Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action programs and will periodically report to me with regard to progress and problem areas. 

My personal commitment to this policy is complete.
