We are committed to ensuring that all persons are entitled to equal employment opportunity and we do not discriminate against employees, or qualified applicants because of race, color, religion, sex, or sexual orientation, national origin, age, citizenship status, marital status, or disability. Equal employment opportunity will be extended to all persons in all aspects of the employer-employee relationship, including recruitment, hiring, upgrading, training, promotion, transfer, discipline, layoff, recall, and termination.

Our Affirmative Action Plan includes efforts to increase the representation of minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, disabled veterans and Vietnam-Era veterans. This plan can be found in the Human Resources Department.

Pay Practices

We pride ourselves on recruiting the best of the best.  We recognize that to maintain our status as a Global Leader our employees must be highly skilled and paid fairly.  Our Compensation Department continually conducts market salary surveys, comparing our positions with those in the local area to make sure we are paying our employees what they deserve.

Merit increases are awarded annually in recognition of all of the hard work, dedication and accomplishments throughout the year.  The merit increase is tied to an annual evaluation of the performance of job duties and customer service.

National Jewish Health encourages growth for our employees, both in their current position and with promotion opportunities.  In fact, we post many of our openings in-house only.  Our Human Resources philosophy includes working along side our management team to help provide an environment ripe in opportunity and rich in potential.

Job Descriptions are established for each position, providing employees with a clear picture of what their role is at National Jewish Health.  Job Descriptions are reviewed annually to ensure they remain accurate.

Americans with Disabilities Act - National Jewish Health complies with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and no person shall be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination in the provision of any care or service on the grounds of race, religion, color, sex, national origin, sexual preference, ancestry, age, familial status, disability or handicap.

Equal Opportunity Employer – National Jewish Health is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and we are committed to hiring a workforce that is as diverse as the communities and people we serve. It is our policy to comply with applicable federal, state, and local laws governing Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO). Unlawful discrimination in employment because of race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, ancestry, disability, veteran status, or other characteristics protected by applicable laws is strictly prohibited.

Drug Free Workplace - In keeping with our mission and vision, National Jewish Health is dedicated to activities and services promoting health and wellness. Therefore, all employees, affiliates and volunteers must abide by applicable drug-related laws and must perform their responsibilities unencumbered by the improper possession, distribution, or use of drugs, narcotics, controlled substances, or alcohol. Prescribed drugs are not prohibited when used in the manner, combination, and quantity intended, unless job performance could be or is affected. The objective is to provide a safe, hazard free environment where patient care can take place under optimum conditions without exposing patients, associates, and others to unnecessary risk or harm.

E- Verify - If you have a legal right to work in the United States, there are laws to protect you against discrimination in the workplace.

You should know that no employer can deny you a job or fire you because of your national origin. Unless mandated by law or government contract, employers cannot require you to be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident or refuse any legally acceptable documents.  If any of these things have happened to you, you may have a valid charge of discrimination that can be filed with the OSC.
