Sexual Harassment – It is the policy of the NOCCCD to provide an educational, employment, and business environment free from sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct or communications constituting sexual harassment as defined and otherwise prohibited by state and federal statutes.

How to File a Complaint

A complaint can be submitted by telephone, in writing, or in person by contacting the Office of Equity and Diversity or the Director of Human Resources.  After a complaint is filed the District will make efforts to informally resolve the complainant’s concerns; this applies whether or not they have filed a formal complaint.

A formal complaint is a written and signed statement meeting the requirements of section 59328 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations as provided in section 4.0 of Board Administrative Procedures (AP3430). A formal complaint requires that the complainant submit the complaint using the Unlawful Discrimination Complaint Form.
