Equal Employment Opportunity

The City of Sacramento is an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer and is committed to creating and maintaining a work environment that is free from all forms of discrimination and harassment. The City of Sacramento's Equal Opportunity Policy prohibits harassment or discrimination due to age (over 40), ancestry, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, medical condition, military or veteran status, national origin, race, religious creed, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and any related medical conditions), sexual orientation, and any other classification protected by federal, state, or local laws, regulations, or ordinances. It also prohibits retaliation for engaging in protected activity, such as filing a discrimination or harassment complaint or participating in an EEO investigation.


If you believe you are being subjected to discrimination, harassment, or retaliation or have questions regarding EEO, please contact the City of Sacramento Equal Employment Office or submit an EEO charge online. Please note that the City shall retain an independent external investigator when claims are made: (1) against a high-ranking individual, including, but not limited to, the city manager, a charter officer, an assistant city manager, a department head, or an elected official; or (2) by or against a Human Resources employee. For more details on the procedure for hiring an external investigator, review this document.


At any time, whether you have contacted the City’s Equal Employment Office or not, you may also contact the following state and/or federal agency for additional assistance. Even if you submit a claim with the City, and that claim is determined to be no violation of the City’s Equal Opportunity Policy, you may submit a claim with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (1-800-884-1684) or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (1-800-669-4000).  The links below are intended to help you contact either agency.


The State of California Civil Rights Department (CRD) is the State agency charged with enforcing California's civil rights laws. The mission of CRD is to protect the people of California from unlawful discrimination in  employment, housing, businesses, and state funded programs. You can leave more about the CRD complaint process on their website.


The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, transgender status, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.
