Equal Opportunity Employment

It is the policy of Cabarrus County to maintain a systematic, consistent recruitment program, to promote equal opportunity employment (EOE), and to identify and attract the most qualified applicants for all vacancies. This intent is achieved through consistency in announcing positions, evaluating all applicants by the same criteria, and by applying uniform testing methods.

Cabarrus County shall select employees on the basis of applicants' qualifications and without regard to age, color, disability, genetic information, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion or sex, except where specific age, sex, or physical requirements constitute a bona fide occupational qualification necessary for job performance. Applicants with disabilities shall be given equal consideration with other applicants for positions in which their disabilities do not represent an unreasonable barrier to satisfactory performance of duties.

Cabarrus County participates in the E-Verify program administered by the US Department of Homeland Security in partnership with the Social Security Administration. For more information, view the E-Verify participation and Right-to-Work posters or visit www.dhs.gov/E-Verify.
