Chancellor Interpretation

I interpret this policy to mean that it is the responsibility of Maricopa executives, supervisors, and employees to work together to create and maintain a workplace where all employees feel safe, respected, valued, and accountable to do their best work.

Compliance with this interpretation will be demonstrated when: 

  • Written policy manuals for all employees are adopted through a collaborative process.
  • Policies and Regulations are adopted that govern a fair and equitable workplace including those related to equal employment opportunity, workplace violence, whistleblower protection, and disability accommodations.
  • The District follows and acts upon the data collected in an Affirmative Action Plan.
  • Employees have access to an ombudsman and anonymous reporting service.
  • Employees are provided with access to relevant policies that relate to equal employment opportunity, Title IX, OSHA, TITLE VII (EEO/AA), and general employee and District policies and procedures.

Compliance will also be demonstrated through the timely and effective manner in which employment matters are addressed, and the policies and procedures that comply with Federal and State laws, and that provide the requisite elements of due process.
