The Norfolk District Attorney's Office is an equal opportunity employer and makes employment decisions, including those concerning hiring, promotion and salary, on the basis of merit.  The Office will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sex, religion, age, national origin or ancestry, handicap or disability, genetics, veteran status and national guard or reserve unit obligations, sexual orientation, gender identity or identification or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law.  All such discrimination is unlawful and prohibited by the NDAO.  


The NDAO is required to prepare an Equal Employment Opportunity Plan (EEOP) Utilization Report.  The NDAO distributed an office-wide survey requesting employees to identify themselves using the following seven (7) race and national origin categories in describing its workforce.
1. Hispanic or Latino
2. Asian
3. Black or African American
4. White
5. Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander
6. American Indian or Alaska Native
7. Two or More Races.

Employees are not required to participate in the survey.

Of the 117 NDAO employees, 18 employees chose not to self-identify.  EEOP does not permit employers to guess as to how an employee identifies.  The numbers below represent the statistics of the 99 employees who participate in the survey compared to the diversity population of Norfolk County.
