Each state agency is required to establish, maintain, carry out, and continually evaluate an affirmative action plan designed to promote equal opportunity in every aspect of recruitment, employment, development, advancement and treatment of employees. To this end, the State Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Coordinator issues guidelines that agencies shall use for establishing, implementing, and judging an acceptable affirmative action plan.
Every three years, state agencies are required to submit an Affirmative Action Plan to the State EEO Coordinator in the Equal Opportunity Division. An Affirmative Action Plan (formerly known as the EEO Strategic Plan) is a written document detailing a set of specific, result-oriented procedures designed to promote equal employment opportunities for all state employees and candidates for state employment.
Each agency’s Affirmative Action Plan shall be required to include the following information:
The enabling statute for the Affirmative Action Plan are R.C. 124.04(O). The regulations that govern the internal complaint process are found at Ohio Adm. Code Chapter 123:1-49.
