DIOCESAN AT-WILL EMPLOYMENT RELATIONSHIP

“All employees who are not subject to written contracts for a definite term are “employees at will.”

“AT WILL” EMPLOYMENT”

Alabama is an “at will” state. “At Will” is a legal concept that holds that an employment relationship is “at the will” of both the employer and employee. An Employment at will relationship can be terminated by either party without cause, with or without notice, at any time. Employees of the Diocese not under written contract for a specific term or a specific project are employees “at will.”

APPLYING FOR WORK

An application or resume should be used to apply for an open position at one of the Diocese locations. You will find the contact information on the Diocese Home Page, under each locations heading, such as Parishes, Schools, etc. If you need assistance completing an application, please contact the location.

DIOCESE PARISH/SCHOOL DOWNLOADABLE APPLICATION

Employment offers are contingent upon successful reference checks, background screening and drug screens. E-verify is also required.

We appreciate your interest in working for the Diocese of Birmingham, and pray you have every success in finding employment that will be meaningful to you.

EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY

The concept of equal employment opportunity is consistent with Diocesan philosophy and in accord with the principles of Christian social justice, which affirm that all persons should receive recognition of their personal dignity and worth. In keeping with this belief, the diocese strives to provide opportunities for        employment on the basis of relevant qualifications, without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, age, veterans or persons with disabilities.

Equal Employment policy includes recruitment, hiring, placement, promotion, demotion, transfer, layoff, recall, rates of pay, and other forms of compensation, selection for training, and use of facilities.

ANTI-DISCRIMINATION

The diocese prohibits discrimination by any employee (regardless of status or classification) of any other employee upon the basis of race, sex, pregnancy, national origin, religion, veterans, disability, and/or any other discriminatory basis prohibited by federal law.

IMMIGRATION LAWS

The Diocese of Birmingham hires only persons who are lawfully authorized to work in the United States, and voluntarily performs E-verify.
