Equal Employment Opportunity

The Department of Transportation/METRA will not discriminate against any employee or applicant in employment decisions based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), age, genetic information, disability, veteran status, or other protected class. Decisions in hiring, promotions, demotions, transfers, working conditions, compensation, training, or termination will not be made with unlawful discrimination.

The Department of Transportation/METRA prohibits retaliation against an individual who files a charge or complaint of discrimination, participates in an employment discrimination proceeding (such as an investigation or lawsuit), or otherwise engages in protected activity. This legal responsibility and ethical commitment are codified through the Equal Employment Opportunity Program.
