Stetson University

Non-Discrimination Policy for Employers

It is the policy of Stetson University to provide its students and graduates with equal opportunity to obtain employment, without discrimination or segregation on the ground of sex, disability, race, age, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, physical characteristics, or any other category protected by federal, state, or local law in its educational programs, admissions policies, financial aid, employment, or other school-administered programs. The policy is enforced by Stetson and, where applicable, federal laws such as Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975. The university is an equal opportunity educational institution.

All individuals and organizations that desire to obtain any form of employer assistance from Stetson University College of Law's Career Development Office must share this commitment to nondiscrimination and equal employment. Employers who discriminate in violation of this policy or who refuse to sign an acknowledgment of adherence to our policy will be denied any form of employer assistance from the Career Development Office. A limited exception to this policy exists for military recruiters and federal agencies but only insofar as their employment and hiring practices are permitted under federal law.

When you create an employer account on Stetson University College of Law's Symplicity account, you will be required to acknowledge that you have reviewed these policies and guidelines and that you agree to the following statement:

I have read and understand the Stetson University College of Law's Non-Discrimination Policy Statement (PDF). I will consider all applicants on the basis of merit and will not discriminate against any individual on the basis of sex, disability, race, age, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, physical characteristics, or any other category protected by federal, state, or local law.

OR

I am exempt from complying with Stetson University College of Law's Non-Discrimination Policy Statement (PDF) because I am seeking applicants on behalf of the United States Military or a federal agency and have an exception insofar as my employment and hiring practices are permitted under federal law.

I further agree to adhere to the Principles and Standards set forth by NALP, the Association for Legal Career Professionals.

I understand that the Career Development Office can discontinue my access to employer services at any time if I am found in violation of these standards, policies and principles.

Students who believe that any employer has violated this policy are urged to report the problem to Cathy Martin, director of Career Development.
