Equal Employment Opportunity Plan

DCF filed the DCF EEOP Utilization Report with the Department of Justice as a requirement of receiving Juvenile Justice Awards.  This report analyzes relevant labor market data and our employment practices to identify possible barriers to the participation of women and minorities in all levels of our workforce. Its purpose is to ensure the opportunity for full and equal participation of men and women in the workplace, regardless of race, color or national origin.


The Vermont Department for Children and Families is one of the largest departments in state government.  The opportunities for growth and promotion are excellent.
