This invitation is offered in compliance with Executive Order 11246, section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, the Veterans Equal Opportunity Employment Act of 1998, and the Jobs for Veterans Act of 2002, which require government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified females, minorities, individuals with disabilities, disabled veterans, recently separated veterans, other protected veterans, and Armed Forces service medal veterans. RMHMC’s affirmative action program contains policies and procedures that assure compliance with our obligations.

It is RMHMC’s policy to provide reasonable accommodations to any qualified applicant or employee. If you need such an accommodation, you may request this at any time. To do so, please contact Human Resources or the EEO Officer, Dee M. Burke, Director Human Resources and Corporate Services.
