Title Vl Nondiscrimination Policy Statement

It is the policy of the Town of Franklin to ensure that no person shall, on the ground of race, color, national origin, limited English Proficiency, income level, sex, age, or disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any Town of Franklin program or activity, including, where applicable, religion, as provided by Title Vl of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, United states Department of Transportation (DoT) order 1050.2A, Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (cFR) Part 21, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, and other pertinent nondiscrimination authorities.

The following practices are hereby prohibited throughout the Town of Franklin to comply, at a minimum, with Title Vl and related requirements:

  • Denying to an individual any standard service or other program benefit without good cause;
  • Providing any service or other benefit to a person which is distinct in quantity or quality, or is provided in a different manner, from that provided to others under the program;
  • Subjecting a person to segregation or separate treatment in any part of a program;
  • Restrictions in the enjoyment of any advantages, privileges, or other benefits enjoyed by others;
  • Methods of Administration, which, directly or through contractual relationships, would defeat or substantially impair the accomplishment of effective nondiscrimination;
  • Different standards, criteria, or other requirements for admission, enrollment, or participation in planning, advisory, contractual or other integral activities;
  • Acts of intimidation or retaliation, including threatening, coercing, or discriminating against any individual for the purpose of interfering with any right or privilege secured by any pertinent nondiscrimination law, or because he/she has made a complaint, testified, assisted, or
    participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding or hearing;
  • Discrimination in any employment resulting from a program, a primary objective of which is to provide employment.

To assure that appropriate program measures are implemented and monitored, I have designated Travis Tallent, Human Resource Director, as the Town of Franklin's Title VI coordinator; (828) 524-2516, ttallent@franklinnc.com.
