Equal Employment Opportunities

It is the policy of the City of Colleyville not to discriminate against any person in recruitment, examination, appointment, training, promotion, discipline, or any other aspect of personnel administration because of race, color, national origin, marital status, age, gender, veteran status, disability status, religious opinions or affiliations, or any other characteristics protected by law.

Employment at Will

Employees who do not have a written, individual employment contract, signed by the city manager and the affected employee, for a specific, fixed term of employment, are employed at will. This means that no individual supervisor has the authority to create an employment contract with an employee for any specified length of time. Either the employee or the City may terminate the employment relationship at any time, for any reason, without notice or cause.

Americans With Disabilities Act

It is the policy of the City of Colleyville to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended and to ensure that no person is discriminated against based on their disability. The City offers equal employment opportunity to qualified individuals and strictly prohibits the discrimination against qualified individuals on the basis of disability. The City shall provide reasonable accommodations to applicants and employees who are otherwise qualified to perform the essential job duties when doing so does not create an undue hardship for the City.

Immigration Law Compliance

The City of Colleyville is committed to employing only United States citizens and aliens who are authorized to work in the United States and who comply with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Within three days of beginning employment, each new employee must properly complete, sign, and date the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Form I-9 and provide the appropriate documentation.

Unlawful Harassment

The City of Colleyville is firmly committed to providing a work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. Each employee is entitled to work in a professional atmosphere that promotes equal employment opportunities and prohibits discriminatory practices, including harassment. Therefore, the City expects that all relationships between employees will be business-like and free of bias, prejudice, and harassment.

Drug Free Work Environment

The City will not hire any applicant for employment found to be engaging in the use or consumption of drugs or abuse of alcohol, unless such drug is prescribed for the user by a licensed physician, and then only if such drug is being used/consumed for the purpose intended.

The City requires a post-offer candidate to submit to a drug test as a condition of employment.
