State Government shall meet its workforce needs through systematic recruitment, selection, and career support programs that identify, attract, and select from the most qualified applicants for State employment, and encourage diverse representation at all occupational levels of the workforce. No selection decision shall be made that will constitute unlawful discrimination in violation of State and Federal law. This policy applies to those employees and positions that are subject to Articles 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 13 and 14 of G.S. 126. This does not include employees of the legislative and judicial branches, the public school and community college systems or other employees that are exempt from these Articles of the Human Resources Act.
