The College of Western Idaho is committed to providing equal employment opportunity for all persons without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other applicable legally protected status.
Qualified veterans will receive preference in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations. Persons needing accommodations during the application process may contact Human Resources at 208.562.3287 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Human Resources develops and implements the College's Affirmative Action Plan (AAP). The AAP identifies the under-utilization of females and minorities in its workforce. This information is used in the College's recruitment and retention efforts.
Under the AAP, the College makes good faith efforts to employ women, minorities, qualified individuals with disabilities, and protected veterans. The AAP is available to employees and job applicants upon request for review at the College.
The College of Western Idaho (CWI) will award a preference to employment of veterans of the U.S. Armed Services in accord with provisions of Idaho Code § 65-503 or its successor. In the event of equal qualifications for an available position, a veteran or family member who qualifies for preference pursuant to Idaho Code § 65-503 or its successor will be employed.
An “eligible veteran” includes:
Veterans and disabled veterans as defined in section 56-502, Idaho Code;
A widow or widower of any veteran as long as he or she remains unmarried;
The wife or husband of a service-connected disabled veteran if the veteran cannot qualify for any public employment because of a service-connected disability.
As required under the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), any person wishing to work for CWI, regardless of the nature of the job or the number of hours or months employed, will be required to show proof of identity and work eligibility.
