Recruitment Policies and Disclaimers
Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Provider
It is the policy of the Company to comply with all employment laws and to afford equal employment opportunity to individuals in all aspects of employment, including in selection for job opportunities, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, military service, protected veteran status, or any other consideration protected by federal, state or local laws.

Recruitment Fraud Statement
Job applicants should be aware of false employment opportunities perpetrated through the use of the internet and social media platforms. The false opportunities frequently involve the misappropriation and use of a company’s logo and photos of its executives to give the appearance of legitimacy. NextDecade believes that one of the best ways to put a stop to this sort of fraudulent activity is to make you aware of it. No applicant for employment with NextDecade is ever required to pay any money as part of the job application or hiring process, and NextDecade’s job recruitment process involves in person and/or telephonic interviews in most cases. In addition, NextDecade’s job recruiting staff sends email communications to job applicants from “@next-decade.com” email accounts only. Any email that states to be from NextDecade but does not have a “@next-decade.com” address should be assumed fraudulent. If you were a victim of fraud, you should file a report with your local law enforcement.
You have a right to inquire about your Personal Data. You may send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
