- The right to freedom from discrimination in employment;
- The right to equal opportunity in hiring, promotion, demotion, transfer, recruitment, discipline, layoff, rate of compensation, training and all other aspects of the employment process;
- The right to file a complaint if you believe discrimination has occurred.
It is the policy of the Office of Budget and Management to maintain a working environment free from discrimination, discriminatory harassment, and retaliation. Further, it is the policy of the Office of Budget and Management to prohibit discrimination, discriminatory harassment, and retaliation of applicants and employees due to:

No state agency may make any employment-related decisions on the basis of the above-listed categories, including, but not limited to, hiring, layoff, termination, transfer, promotion, demotion, rate of compensation or eligibility for in-service training programs. Moreover, no state agency may retaliate against a complainant or a participant in a complaint.
