Civil Rights Operations (CRO) is responsible for ensuring Equal Employment Opportunity exists for all applicants and CDCR employees, and to promote a professional work environment free from discrimination, harassment and retaliation.
CRO administers a statewide program for filing and resolving EEO complaints, including review and analysis of complaints, development of policy and procedure, providing technical assistance, and conducting training to provide discrimination awareness and prevention.
Violations of the CDCR EEO policy may be addressed at the local level and/or with Civil Rights Operations upon referral. When appropriate, allegations of EEO misconduct are investigated by Special Agents in Field Operations.
