The Arts Foundation Fair Labor Standards for Grant Recipients
All Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona Grant recipients must abide by the following standards:
Fair Labor Standards
All professional performers related or supporting professional personnel employed on projects or productions which are financed in whole or in part under the grant will be paid, without subsequent deduction or rebate on any account, not less than the minimum compensation as determined by the Secretary of Labor to be the prevailing minimum compensation for persons employed in similar activities.
No part of any project or production which is financed in whole or in part under the grant will be engaged in or performed under working conditions which are unsanitary or hazardous or dangerous to the health and safety of the employees engaged in such project or production. Compliance with the safety and sanitary laws of the State in which the performance or part thereof is to take place shall be prima facie evidence of compliance.
All grants and awards from The Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona are in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
No person in the United States shall on the grounds of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance section (601). No person in the United States shall on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. No otherwise qualified handicapped individual in the United States, as defined in Section 7 (6) shall, solely by reason of his/her handicap, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal assistance.
In addition, Arts Foundation grants recipients must also follow guidelines laid about by The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which enforces the prohibitions against employment discrimination in Title VII. The EEOC has held that discrimination against an individual because that person is transgender (also known as gender identity discrimination), and also held that discrimination against an individual because of that person’s sexual orientation is discrimination because of sex and therefore prohibited under Title VII of 1964.
