EEO Policy

February 1, 2016

 

EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY PROGRAMMING

OF EMPORIA’S RADIO STATIONS

            The Equal Employment Opportunity Policy that would be followed at

radio stations KVOE(AM & FM) and KFFX(FM), Emporia, Kansas would be

that of the FCC’s Equal Employment Opportunity Program.

            To more completely indicate what Emporia’s Radio Stations, Inc.’s EOE

Policy would be, it would include the following:

  1. General Policy

It would be our policy to provide equal employment opportunity to all qualified individuals without regard to their race, color, religion, national origin or sex in all personnel actions including recruitment, evaluation, selection, promotion, compensation, training and termination.

            It would also be our policy to promote the realization of equal employment opportunity through a positive, continuing program of specific practices designed to ensure the full realization of equal employment opportunity with out regard to race, color, religion, national origin or sex.

            To make this policy effective, and to ensure conformance with the Rules and Regulations of the Federal Communications Commission, our Equal Employment Opportunity Program would include the following elements:

  1. Responsible for Implementation

Lee Schroeder, the General Manager of the radio stations KVOE(AM & FM) and KFFX (FM), will be responsible for the administration and implementation of our Equal Employment Opportunity Program. It would also be the responsibility of all persons making employment decisions with respect to recruitment, evaluation, selection, promotion, compensation, training and termination of employees to ensure that our policy and program is adhered to and that no person is discriminated against in employment because of race, color, religion, national origin or sex.

  1. Policy Dissemination

To assure that all members of the staff are aware of our equal employment opportunity policy and their individual responsibilities in carrying out this policy the following communication efforts will be made:

The station’s employment application form will contain a notice informing prospective employees that discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin or sex is prohibited and that they may notify the appropriate local, state or federal agency if they believe they have been the victim of discrimination.

Appropriate notices will be posted informing applicants and employees that the station is an Equal Opportunity Employer and of their right to notify an appropriate local, state or federal agency if they believe they have been the victim of discrimination.

We would seek the cooperation in relation to minorities and women, and to foster their full consideration in filling job vacancies, we would utilize the following recruitment procedures:

We will attempt to maintain systematic communication, both orally and in writing, with minority and women organizations to encourage the referral of qualified minority and female applicants. This will include local chapters for a) National Organization of Women, and b) NAACP.

In addition to organizations, which specialize in minority and women candidates, we would also deal with employment services, including state employment agencies, which refer job candidates without regard to their race, color, religion, national origin or sex. Examples of such agencies are: a) Kansas State Employment Service, and b) Local Offices of National Placement Services.

When we recruit prospective employees from educational institutions such recruitment efforts would include area schools and colleges with significant minority and female enrollments. These include: a) Emporia State University, b) Kansas State University, c) University of Kansas, and d) Flint Hills Technical College.

When utilizing media for recruitment purposes, help-wanted advertisements would always include a notice that we are an Equal Opportunity Employer and contain no indications, either explicit or implied, or a preference for one sex over another.

When we place employment advertisements in printed media, some of such advertisements would be placed in media which have significant circulation or are of particular interest of minorities and women. These include: a) Broadcasting Magazine, b) NAB Publications, and c) Emporia Gazette.

We would also encourage present employees, particularly minority and female employees, to refer minority and female candidates for existing and future job openings.

  1. Training

Station resources and/or needs are such that we do not choose to institute specific programs for upgrading the skills of employees. However, we would provide certain instances of on-the-job training to upgrade the skills of employees as follows: sales training, new materials and tools for sales people. We would also, where possible, provide intern training for students with a broadcast interest.

 

Annual EEO Assessment for the period February 1, 2014 to January 31, 2015

Assessing our EEO Program for the past period, we have continued to insure that all personnel involved in hiring and recruiting are aware of the FCC EEO requirements.

$11.      We consistently broadcast announcements inviting groups, organizations, and agencies that refer and place employees, to contact us if they wish to be notified when openings occur. These organizations are added to our       recruitment sources list, which is quite complete.

$12.      We will be reviewing the ERS Inc. EEO Policy Statement and make sure that

all individuals with the ability to hire, understands and complies with all

      aspects of the policy.

$13.      We continue to attend “Job Fairs” and “Career Day “ events for the

      opportunity to discuss the broadcast business and hand out applications to

      those that may have an interest in  broadcasting.

$14.      We continue our involvement in the Kansas Association of Broadcasters

      Scholarship Program monetarily, promoting the availability of the scholarship,

      and making applications available to interested individuals.

5.  We have paid internships available in cooperation with the Kansas Association

                 of Broadcasters.

$16.      Management has attended EEO Seminars to reinforce the understanding of the EEO requirements.

While we have had no full time openings, we feel confident with our attention to, and fulfillment of the EEO requirements, but will continue to explore any opportunities that avail themselves to make compliance more effective.
