Notice of Rights
Basing treatment of employees or applicants on their membership in a protected class is expressly prohibited by law and County policy. Accordingly, a complaint may be made for adverse treatment, such as discrimination, harassment, or hostility in the workplace, because of one's membership in a protected class. Protected classes include age, ancestry, color, race, sex (gender), religion, national origin, marital status, physical or mental disability, medical condition, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or any other basis protected by law. A complaint may also be made for retaliation suffered because of participation in the complaint process as a complainant or witness.
