Unlawful Discrimination

and Sexual Harassment



Unlawful Discrimination - It is the policy of the North Orange County Community College District (District) to provide an educational, employment, and business environment in which no person shall be unlawfully subject to discrimination or sexual harassment, nor unlawfully denied full and equal access to the benefits of any program or activity of the District.

Sexual Harassment - It is the policy of the District to provide an educational, employment, and business environment free from unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, visual or physical conduct of a sexual nature constituting sexual harassment as defined in District policy and otherwise prohibited by state and federal law.

     Sexual Harassment Prevention:

How to File a Complaint - A complaint of unlawful discrimination or sexual harassment may be submitted by contacting the Director of Equity and Diversity, the Vice Chancellor of Human Resources, or the Confidential Employment Hotline. Anonymous complaints will not be accepted. 

When a complaint is received, the District will attempt to informally resolve the complainant's concerns; however, a complainant need not participate in informal resolution and may file a formal complaint as provided in Section 7.0 of Board Administrative Procedure 3410. A formal complaint must be submitted using the Unlawful Discrimination Complaint form.

A complaint alleging discrimination in employment, the complaint must normally be submitted within 180 days of the date the alleged unlawful discrimination/sexual harassment occurred.

A complaint alleging discrimination that does not involve employment must be submitted within one year of the date of the alleged unlawful discrimination/sexual harassment or within one year of the date on which the complainant knew or should have known of the facts underlying the allegation of unlawful discrimination/sexual harassment.

It is unlawful to knowingly file a false complaint.
