Equal Opportunity and Employment Investigations Team
The Equal Opportunity and Employment Investigations team works closely with, and provides legal advice to, the Equal Opportunity Division (EOD) in investigations of alleged violations of County policies against discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. The team also supports EOD in reasonable accommodation matters by providing legal advice and training regarding accommodation requirements, the interactive process, and placement issues. In addition, the team responds to employment-related government administrative claims, including complaints processed through the Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The team is also responsible for providing legal advice to County departments relating to workplace safety issues and other non-labor employment matters, including those relating to the County’s Office of Occupational Safety and Environmental Compliance (OSEC), Cal/OSHA, the Department of Labor, the California Labor Commissioner/Department of Labor Standards Enforcement, and the Employment Development Department.
