EEOC Statement

In HIS Name HR LLC (IHN HR LLC) is a for-profit company. As such we are an Equal Employment Opportunity employer. We do not discriminate based upon race, religion, color, national origin, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, status as a protected veteran, status as an individual with a disability, or other applicable legally protected characteristics. All organizations not classified as a Religious Employer are required by current employment laws to follow the same EEOC guidelines. It is the responsibility of employers who post positions on Job Shepherd to determine whether their organization is exempt from these guidelines.

Job Shepherd is a division of IHN HR LLC . We ask that all organizations who utilize the resources of Job Shepherd follow all federal, state, and local employment regulations and laws.

Organizations currently exempt from certain provisions of these laws may include religious employers of ministers and clergy, including K-12 Schools, seminaries, colleges and camps, and religious organizations, including those with non-ministerial positions.

Under the exception, religious organizations are permitted to give employment preference to believers of the same religion. This applies only to those institutions whose “purpose and character are primarily religious.” To determine whether an entity qualifies as religious, consider whether its articles of incorporation state a religious purpose, and whether its day-to-day operations are religious. For example, are the services it performs, the product it produces, or the educational curriculum it provides directed toward advancement of the religion? Also, consider whether the entity is nonprofit, and whether it is affiliated with, or supported by, a church or other religious organization. EEOC Declaration

Religious organizations may not otherwise discriminate in employment on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. Thus, a religious organization is not permitted to engage in racially discriminatory hiring by claiming that its religious beliefs include not associating with people of other races. And while Title VII does not expressly exempt religious organizations from provisions barring discrimination on the basis of race, gender, or national origin, there is a limited “ministerial exception” that allows religious employers to avoid liability for discrimination claims from employees who formally qualify as ministers.

It is the responsibility of organizations utilizing this site to ensure that they are classified as exempt from these regulations and laws, and that they monitor and be current in changes in legislation that might affect their protection under current employment law. IHN HR is not responsible for violations of any federal, state, or local employment regulations and laws by users of this site. Please read this important legal disclaimer.
