The Illinois Department of Human Rights is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. IDHR values a highly qualified and diverse workforce. It is the policy of IDHR to provide equal employment opportunity to all persons, regardless of age, race, religion, color, national origin, sex, political affiliations, marital status, physical or mental disability, age, sexual orientation, membership or non-membership in an employee organization, or on the basis of personal favoritism or other non-merit factors.
IDHR welcomes and encourages applications from persons with physical and mental disabilities, and will reasonably accommodate the needs of those persons. IDHR is firmly committed to satisfying its equal opportunity and affirmative obligations under the law to ensure that persons with disabilities have every opportunity to be hired and advance on the basis of merit within IDHR.
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Illinois Human Rights Act, State agencies must ensure that the employment process is accessible to persons with disabilities. Specifically, these laws require that the State provide reasonable accommodations upon request by individuals participating in all steps of the employment process. This includes the initial testing phases of the candidate selection process for state positions as well as the subsequent employment interview process. Any and all accommodation requests by applicants throughout the State employment process should be appropriately reviewed and considered by human resources staff in state hiring agencies. If you need such an accommodation, please contact:
