Discrimination and Harassment Prevention
The Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR) is an equal opportunity employer guided by principles of accessibility, equality of opportunity, and human dignity. Decisions involving the recruitment, hiring, training, promotion, layoff, and the awarding of benefits to an employee will be based on individual merit and be free from discrimination in all its forms.
The IDOR will not engage in discrimination or harassment against any person because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, order of protection status, genetic information, marital status, disability, sexual orientation including gender identity, unfavorable discharge from the military or status as a protected veteran and will comply with all federal and state nondiscrimination, equal opportunity and affirmative action laws, orders, and regulations. This policy applies to employment, access to and treatment in the agency programs or services.
Retaliation against any employee who exercises his or her right to file a complaint against the IDOR for alleged discrimination is prohibited.
All executive, managerial, and supervisory staff are expected to support and aid in the implementation of this policy.
If an employee, applicant, or customer has any questions or wants to file a complaint, please contact the EEO Officer at REV.EEO@illinois.gov.
Discrimination and Harassment Prevention Policy
IDOR effectiveness is attributed to our ability to communicate with each other in a manner that is respectful, professional, and courteous to others in the workplace that support collaboration and cooperation of all employees. This should be demonstrated through free expression and exchange of individual's ideas and concerns, and the fair and timely resolution of conflict should it arise.
It is the agency's position that all employees have a right to work in an environment free of discrimination or harassment. The department prohibits discrimination or harassment in all of its forms by employees, managers, supervisors, co-workers, customers, or contractors. This policy is designed to promote a safe and healthy work environment and to comply with multiple laws that prohibit discrimination, including:
- the Equal Pay Act of 1963,
- Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,
