BACKGROUND CHECKS AND INVESTIGATIONS
It is the policy of the Court that all new employees and volunteers (including interns, externs, work-study students and work-training individuals) must undergo a background check or investigation.
All court employees are at-will employees in the Excepted Service. At-will employment refers to an employment relationship which has no specific duration, and which may be terminated at will by either an employer or an employee, with or without cause.
PAY SYSTEM AND COMPENSATION

Employees are required to use electronic fund transfer (EFT) for payroll direct deposit.
Eligibility for certain benefits depend on the appointment type. Benefits include annual leave, sick leave, paid holidays, health care programs (such as health insurance, dental and vision insurance, and health care reimbursement accounts), financial security (such as the Thrift Savings Plan, Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), life insurance, and long-term care insurance), Employee Assistance programs and a Commuter Benefit Program, to name a few.

ANTI-DISCRIMINATION AND ANTI-HARASSMENT NOTICE
The United States Court of International Trade prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, gender, gender identity, pregnancy, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, age (40 years and older), or disability (“protected categories”). The court provides equal employment opportunities to all individuals, and employment considerations will be based solely on merit, qualifications, and abilities. The court also prohibits harassment based on any protected category, such as sexual or racial harassment, or any abusive conduct, regardless of motivation. The court has adopted the United States Court of International Trade Employment Dispute Resolution Plan (EDR) Plan. A copy of the EDR Plan is posted in “Your Employee Rights and How to Report Wrongful Conduct.”
