[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Grafton by Ord. No. A-012-91, 1991 (Title 2, Ch. 2.47, of the 1979 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
It shall be the general policy of the Village to recruit and select the most qualified persons for any and all positions within Village government. This shall include full-time, part-time and limited term appointments. Recruitment and selection shall be done in an affirmative manner to ensure open competition, provide equal opportunity and prohibit discrimination because of race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual preference, national origin, ancestry, political belief, physical or mental handicap or marital status. The goal of this policy is that persons of disadvantaged groups be fairly represented by the Village's work force and that promotional opportunities are provided for all qualified employees.
The Village Board, as the duly elected legislative authority of the Village, and the Village Administrator, as the duly appointed executive authority of the Village, do reaffirm, endorse, support and are committed to the concept of equal employment as defined and/or implied under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972. Equal employment opportunity will be assured in the municipal personnel systems and affirmative action provided in their administration. Discrimination against any person in recruitment, examination, appointment, training, promotion, retention, separation, discipline, or any other aspect of personnel administration because of race, color, religion, creed, age, sex, sexual preference, national origin, ancestry, political belief, physical or mental handicap, or marital status is prohibited.
It is the policy of the Village not to discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, religion, creed, age, sex, sexual preference, national origin, ancestry, political belief, physical or mental handicap, or marital status. This policy not to discriminate in employment includes, but is not limited to, the following:
A. 
The Village will employ those applicants who possess the best qualifications, necessary skills, education and experience, without regard to race, color, religion, creed, age, sex, sexual preference, national origin, ancestry, political belief, physical or mental handicap, or marital status.

D. 
No employee shall aid, abet, compel, coerce or conspire to discharge or cause another employee to resign because of race, color, religion, creed, age, sex, sexual preference, national origin, ancestry, political belief, physical or mental handicap, or marital status.
E. 
The Village will establish rates of pay and terms, conditions or privileges of employment without regard to race, color, religion, creed, age, sex, sexual preference, national origin, ancestry, political belief, physical or mental handicap, or marital status.
