FILE A COMPLAINT
If you would like to file a discrimination, harassment or retaliation complaint, complete and submit the intake review form. A representative from our office will contact you to schedule an intake assessment.
The harassment and discrimination complaint process is an administrative process to resolve issues alleging acts of employment discrimination and harassment prohibited by City Administrative Instruction AI 71, and equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws and regulations.
It is available to employees and applicants for employment with the City of Oakland who allege they have been subjected to discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth,) sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, ancestry, national origin, age (over 40), disability (mental and physical), medical condition, genetic information, marital status, military and veteran status or reprisal for participation in an EEO process or opposition to discrimination or harassment.
If a matter within our jurisdiction is not resolved, we will initiate a fair, impartial, independent, fact finding investigation of all relevant issues raised in your complaint.
