Discrimination & Harassment Complaints for Employees & Third Parties

As a San José State University employee, you have Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action and Non-Discrimination rights based in law.

The Office for Equal Opportunity assists the campus community in matters related to the investigation of discrimination, harassment and retaliation. Review CSU Executive Order 1096 for additional information. If your compliant falls under the definition of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, complete the form below.

For complaints related to sexual harassment and/or sexual misconduct, you will need to file your complaint with the Title IX Office.

In addition, all complainants may file complaints of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation with the State of California Department of Fair Employment Housing (DFEH), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program (OFCCP) whether or not complainants choose to use the university's complaint procedure. Time limits for filing complaints with State and Federal compliance agencies vary and those agencies should be contacted directly for specific information.
