Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area  provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics. In addition to federal law requirements, LSSNCA complies with applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment in every location in which we have facilities. LSSNCA conducts extensive criminal background checks on all new hire and current employees. 

LSSNCA is required to participate in the federal government's E-Verify program, to confirm the employment authorization of all newly hired employees and most existing employees through an electronic database maintained by the Social Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security.  With respect to new hires, the E-Verify process is completed in conjunction with a new hire's completion of the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification upon commencement of employment.  E-Verify is not used as a tool to pre-screen candidates.  For up-to-date information on E-Verify, go to and click on the 'E-Verify' logo.
