Administration Code Key Issue of Concern #4
LIMITS TO HIRING QUALIFIED STAFF
The proposed Code requires that staff “endeavour to learn, abide by, and respect Mohawk traditions (thanksgiving address, language).” This requirement could impede the hiring of staff with sufficient or specialized skills needed to best serve the community.
- Due to the limited population on reserve the majority of staff are non-members and this imposes unreasonable expectations on staff that are hired to do a job and not to necessarily embrace a culture of which they have no affiliation to.
- It is also against human rights to impose a personal belief system on any employee
