EEO tagline – shortened & requirements

Anonymous - May 23, 2017
Back to Ask the Experts

We are currently posting the following on your site, and have recently starting working towards posting this consistently on all our sites:

“[Our company name] considers applicants for all positions without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, disability, or sexual orientation. All applicants will be considered solely on the basis of their qualifications.”

However, some of the sites we post on require us to pay per word or per character, so our recruiting team, in an effort to save money or use it on the “meat” of the post, are wondering about shortening this for those sites only. I do know that we can shorten it but want to ensure there we are both compliant with the law and consistently post the important portions of it.

Do you happen to have suggestions on wording that is short but still covers it?

Also, shouldn’t we be including gender identity in the list?

I’m working on revising the full statement to be consistent and all-inclusive in all places we list it. Do you have other suggestions of things that would/could be added or otherwise changes?
