FILING INSTRUCTIONS

Broadcast station licensees are required to afford equal employment opportunity to all qualified persons and to refrain from discriminating in employment and related benefits on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, and sex. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.2080. Pursuant to these requirements, a television station employment unit that employs five or more full-time station employees must file a full and complete Broadcast Mid-Term Report. If a television station employment unit employs fewer than five full-time employees, only the first two pages of this report need be filed [through Section I and the Certification] .

A copy of this Mid-Term Report must be kept in the station's public file. Failure to meet these requirements may result in sanctions or remedies. These requirements are contained in 47 C.F.R. Section 73.2080 and are authorized by the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.

Consider as "full-time" employees all those permanently working 30 or more hours a week.

CERTIFICATION
This report must be certified, as follows:
A. By licensee, if an individual;
B. By a partner, if a partnership (general partner, if a limited partnership);
C. By an officer,

GENERAL POLICY

A broadcast station must provide equal employment opportunity to all qualified individuals without regard to their race, color, national origin, religion or sex in all personnel actions including recruitment, evaluation, selection, promotion, compensation, training and termination.

Section II

RESPONSIBILITY FOR IMPLEMENTATION

It is also the responsibility of all persons at a broadcast station making employment decisions with respect to recruitment, evaluation, selection, promotion, compensation, training and termination of employees to ensure that no person is discriminated against in employment because of race, color, religion, national origin or sex.
