How Do I File a Complaint of Discrimination or Harassment?
Online Complaint Form
The Human Resource department and CCD encourage you to take the necessary steps to increase your wellness and safety in order to work and learn in a friendly environment. Without this, we understand your life balance quality and success is at risk. To file a written complaint of discrimination or harassment, please submit the Online Complaint Form.
Anyone who has complained about discrimination or harassment, or who participated in an investigation by providing information, is protected from the negative acts of another who wishes to punish them for making the complaint or participating in an investigation.
Retaliatory harassment is intentional action taken by an accused individual or third party that harms an individual as reprisal for filing or participating in the civil rights grievance proceeding.
It is a violation of the college procedure to engage in retaliatory acts against any employee or student who files a grievance or any individual who testifies, assists, or participates in a grievance proceeding, investigation, or hearing relating to such grievance.
