license term. Below is a general outline of how the radio station achieved broad

and inclusive outreach during the two- year period covering June 1, 2009-May

I. General Policy

 

WEAA afforded equal employment opportunities in all personnel actions without

regard to race, color, religion, national origin, or sex. WEAA followed its EEO

program which is designed to fully utilize the skills of qualified persons. It was,

and continues to be, our policy to provide equal employment opportunity to all

qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, or sex

in all personnel actions including recruitment, evaluation, selection, promotion,

compensation, training, and termination.

It has been our policy to promote the realization of equal employment opportunity

through a positive, continuing program of specific practices designed to ensure

the full realization of equal employment opportunity without regard to race, color,

religion, national origin, or sex. To make this policy effective and to ensure

conformance with the Rules and Regulations of the Federal Communications

Commission, WEAA followed its Equal Employment Opportunity Program which

includes the following elements:

 

II. Responsibility for Implementation

 

The official with the responsibility for implementing the station’s EEO program

was the General Manager of WEAA. It was also the responsibility of all persons

making employment decisions with respect to the recruitment, evaluation,

selection, promotion, compensation, training, and termination of employees to

ensure that WEAA’s policy and program is adhered to and that no person is

discriminated against in employment because of race, color, religion, national

origin, or sex.

 

III. Policy Dissemination.

 

To ensure that all members of the staff were cognizant of WEAA’s equal

employment opportunity policy and their individual responsibilities in carrying out

this policy, the following communication efforts were made:

 

(a) WEAA’s employment application forms contained a notice informing

prospective employees that discrimination because of race, color, religion,

national origin, or sex is prohibited and that they may notify an appropriate local,

State, or federal agency if they believe they have been the victims of

Discrimination.

(b) Appropriate notices were posted informing applicants and employees that the

station is an Equal Opportunity Employer and of their right to notify an

appropriate local, state or federal agency if they believe they have been the

victims of discrimination.

the station’s EEO policies and guidelines.
