NYSERDA aims to foster a safe, collegial, and productive work environment. Consistent with published guidance for NYS government entities, we encourage our employees to have full vaccination and require weekly COVID-19 testing for those not fully vaccinated. We adhere to New York’s Statewide Reasonable Accommodation Policy and Procedures in all phases of the application and employment process.

NYSERDA is committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race (including traits historically associated with race), ethnicity, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, the status of being transgender, familial status, marital status, age, national origin, disability (including pregnancy related conditions), military or veteran status, genetic information or predisposition, reproductive health decision making (including the decision to use or access a particular drug, device, or medical service), the status of being a victim of domestic violence, known relationship or association with any member of a protected class, or any other basis prohibited by law. We also consider qualified applicants regardless of criminal histories, consistent with legal requirements.
