Equal Opportunity/Non-Discrimination Statement
Rockland Community College is an equal employment opportunity, affirmative action employer with a commitment to recruiting and retaining a diverse faculty and staff. It is the College’s policy not to discriminate in hiring, compensation and other employment practices, conditions and privileges of employment on the basis of age, alienage, color, creed, disability, gender/sex, marital status, national origin, prior non-job related record of conviction, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.
The College conducts background checks, including, but not be limited to, a social security trace, federal criminal checks, county criminal checks, education level verification and sexual offender registry check, on all finalists for exempt administrator, administrator and full-time faculty positions. A background check will not be conducted without the written authorization of the finalist. However, the finalist will be ineligible for employment if s/he refuses to provide such written authorization.
A criminal conviction will not necessarily result in disqualification for employment. Rather, such factors as any relationship to the job, the candidate’s age at the time of the conviction, the length of time since the conviction, the seriousness and nature of the crime, and any rehabilitation will be considered.
