The Grantee shall take affirmative action to insure that applicants for employment are employed, and that employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, physical or mental handicap unrelated to ability, marital status, or unfavorable discharge from military service. Such action shall include, but not be limited to, the following: employment, upgrading, demotion, or transfer; recruitment or recruitment advertising; layoff or termination; rates of pay or other form of compensation; and selection for training, including apprenticeship. The Grantee shall post in conspicuous places, available to employees and applicants for employment, notices setting forth the provisions of this nondiscrimination clause. The Grantee shall state that all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, physical or mental handicap unrelated to ability, marital status, or unfavorable discharge from military service. The Grantee shall incorporate the foregoing requirements of this subsection (a) in all of its contracts for program work.
2) The Grantee shall cause or require to be inserted in full in any contract and subcontract for work, or modification thereof, all applicable federal and state Equal Employment Opportunity provisions.
b) Discrimination – The Grantee shall refrain from unlawful discrimination in employment and will undertake affirmative action to assure quality of employment opportunity and eliminate the effects of past discrimination in accordance with the Illinois Human Rights Act [775 ILCS 5]; section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 USC 794); the Age Discrimination Act of 1975 (42 USC 6106-6107); and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 USC 2000d-2000d-7) (24 CFR 1.4 (1987)).
