The Human Resources department's goal, through its risk management function, is to avoid, reduce, control, and finance loss that may arise from the activities of the Town. In order to protect the Town's financial, property, and personnel assets from the possibility of accidental loss, injury, and/or catastrophic destruction, the Human Resources and Finance Department coordinates Town insurance coverage for Property, General Liability, Auto Liability, Workers' Compensation, Crime, Public Officials and Law Enforcement Liability through the Texas Municipal League Intergovernmental Risk Pool (TML IRP).
EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY (EEO)
The Town of Pantego is an equal opportunity employer committed to hiring qualified individuals and retaining a highly qualified and diversified workforce. It is the policy of the Town not to discriminate against any person in recruitment, examination, appointment, training, promotion, retention, discipline, or any other aspect of personnel administration based on an employee’s or application’s religious opinions or affiliations, membership, or non-membership in employee organizations, or because of race, color, national origin, ancestry, marital status, age, gender, veteran, disability or any other basis prohibited by federal, state and local laws.
It is necessary and required by law for the Town to provide a drug-free working environment for its employees and the public. All employment is contingent upon passing a pre-employment drug screen. Any candidate who refuses to submit to a pre-employment drug screen will be removed from consideration for employment with the Town. The pre-employment drug screen will be conducted by a physician of the Town’s choice and paid for by the Town.
Our organization is committed to complying with all applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Adopted policies prohibit discrimination against any qualified employee or applicant with regard to any terms or conditions of employment because of such individual’s disability or perceived disability, so long as the employee can perform the essential functions of the job. In accordance, the Town of Pantego will provide reasonable accommodations to a qualified individual with a disability, as defined by the ADA, provided such accommodations do not constitute an undue hardship on the Town.
All employment and compensation with the Town are provided “at-will” meaning that the employment relationship can be terminated with or without cause, with or without notice, anytime, at the option of either the Town or the employee, except as otherwise provided by law.
