West Valley City is an “Equal Opportunity Employer” and selects, hires, promotes, and compensates employees without regard to race, religion, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, color, national origin, or any other non-meritorious factor. The City evaluates applicants for employment or candidates for promotion based upon their knowledge, skills, experience, education, and potential for job performance consistent with the needs of the position.
It is the policy of West Valley City to comply with all federal and state laws concerning the employment of persons with disabilities and to act in accordance with regulations and guidance issued by the EEOC. Furthermore, it is our policy not to discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities in regard to application procedures, hiring, advancement, termination, compensation, training, or other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment.
West Valley City will reasonably accommodate qualified individuals with a disability so that they can perform the essential functions of a job, unless doing so causes a direct threat to these individuals or others in the workplace and the threat cannot be eliminated by reasonable accommodation and/or causes undue hardship. Any questions or requests for accommodations should be made through the Human Resource Office.
This employer participates in E-Verify and will provide the federal government with your Form I-9 information to confirm that you are authorized to work in the U.S. If E-Verify cannot confirm that you are authorized to work, this employer is required to give you written instructions and an opportunity to contact Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or Social Security Administration (SSA) so you can begin to resolve the issue before the employer can take any action against you, including terminating your employment. Employers can only use E-Verify once you have accepted a job offer and completed the Form I-9.
All employment offers are contingent upon the successful completion of a pre-employment background check, for applicants 18 years and older, and a drug-test.
