Equal Employment Opportunity
Equal Employment Opportunity encompasses employment programs to prevent and eliminate:
- Discrimination on the basis of a protected class;
- Harassment based on a protected class; and
- Retaliation for making a claim of, or opposing, discrimination or harassment.
Special rules apply in the area of Disability Discrimination that may require "reasonable accommodation" for a qualified applicant or employee (unless it would create an "undue hardship" for the employer).
The Equal Opportunity and Whistleblower Compliance Unit promulgates, revises, updates and interprets systemwide policies and procedures covering discrimination, harassment, retaliation.
The Unit also reviews appeals of campus decisions regarding employee complaints of discrimination/harassment/retaliation.
And, the Unit oversees Affirmative Action Plans at the 23 CSU campuses and the Office of the Chancellor.
If you are a CSU employee who has a question pertaining to your particular employment, and you do not have an appeal of a discrimination/harassment/retaliation complaint pending review at the Chancellor's Office, you must contact the staff or academic Human Resources office, or EEO office, at the campus where you are employed for assistance.
