Claims of discrimination or retaliation in recruitment, hiring or promotional policies or practices which are based on the complainant’s protected status may be made by filing a discrimination complaint. Such claims must be filed at the campus level or in the Chancellor’s Office. The Equal Opportunity/Title IX/Compliance Unit processes appeals filed by an individual to review the determinations of an investigation of the complaint.
