DDOT's EEO program pervades all human resource practices including but not limited to recruitment, hiring, transfers, promotions, training, compensation, benefits, recognition, and all forms of employment.
If you feel you have been discriminated against in any of the above areas you have the right to file a complaint with a DC Government EEO Counselor within 180 calendar days of an occurrence of an alleged unlawful discriminatory practice or 180 calendar days of the discovery of the unlawful occurrence. The EEO Counselor will attempt to resolve the matter within 30 calendar days. If you are not satisfied with the results, you have 15 calendar days to file a formal complaint with the DC Office of Human Rights. For complaints of sexual harassment, you may file directly with the DC Office of Human Rights.
Affirmative Action Program
As a recipient of federal funds, DDOT is also committed to taking Affirmative Action to hire and advance minorities and women as well as qualified individuals with disabilities and covered veterans.
As provided in 23 CFR §230.305(a)(1), the District Department of Transportation Affirmative Action Plan is a written document detailing the positive action steps the agency will take to ensure equal employment opportunity. The AAP sets annual utilization targets by job group for underutilized women and minorities.
External Equal Employment Opportunity
DDOT, as a contracting agency and a recipient of federal aid, DDOT has a responsibility to ensure compliance by contractors with the requirements of federal-aid construction contracts, including the equal opportunity requirements, and to assist in and cooperate with Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) programs to assure equal opportunity, through 23 CFR Part 230. Specifically, it should be a fundamental policy for contractors and all subcontractors to comply with all federal laws that prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, disability, genetic information or retaliation.
