UCCS CAREER FAIR COMPLIANCE INFORMATION
The University of Colorado Colorado Springs is an Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Employer. The University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability or veteran status in its programs, activities or employers. Equal employment opportunity extends to all aspects of the employment relationship including hiring, recruiting, interviewing, selection, transfer, promotion, training, working conditions, compensation, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment.
By registering for the UCCS Fall 2013 Career Fair, you assure the Career Center that representatives of your organization understand the content and implications of the Civil Rights Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act and other relevant regulations concerning the Equal Employment Opportunity Act, and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act concerning access to student personal information.
The UCCS Career Center is a member of NACE, National Association of Colleges and Employers, and as such adheres to the Principles for Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employers. Employers participating in the UCCS Fall 2013 Career Fair are also expected to adhere to these guidelines and those may be viewed at http://www.naceweb.org/principles/?referal=knowledgecenter&menuID=203. Employers participating in the UCCS Fall 2013 Career Fair must have opportunities that require at least a Bachelor's degree or an Internship opportunity. Any sales opportunities must offer a base salary in addition to any commission that can be earned. Any third-party recruiters will represent employers who have authorized them and will disclose to the UCCS Career Center the names of represented employers. Under no circumstance will a third-party recruiter who charges students for its services be allowed to attend the Career Fair. Lastly, we do not promote pyramid organizations or network marketing organizations in accordance with membership in our professional organization, National Association of Colleges and Employers, NACE.
The University of Colorado Colorado Springs expects that any employer or third-party organization representing an employer that uses its facilities, including but not limited to the career services office, for the purpose of recruiting full-time, part-time, and temporary employees or interns and cooperative education students, complies with federal and state equal employment opportunity laws in its recruiting and hiring. The University of Colorado Colorado Springs also expects that employers, third-party organizations, and their representatives strive to eliminate all forms of harassment, including sexual harassment in their recruiting, hiring, and selection process.
In addition, please be aware that serving alcohol to job candidates is inappropriate and inadvisable. That means, having an open bar, a paid bar, or holding a recruiting event in a bar is inappropriate. Given the whole notion of alcohol abuse and the problems college campuses are having with alcohol among students, serving alcohol at a reception is sending the wrong message. Further, many college students are younger than the state's drinking age, and many college campuses now have a zero-alcohol-tolerance policy in effect. Therefore, serving alcohol could be in violation of a state's law and a school's policy. This statement is intended to demonstrate the Career Center's support of the "No Alcohol in Campus Recruiting" policy.
If you have any questions regarding these policies, please don't hesitate to contact me directly, 719-255-3745.
