Discrimination Complaint Tracking and Monitoring

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) Discrimination Complaint Tracking and Monitoring Unit maintains statewide oversight of the collection and analysis of Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaint data across all state departments. Oversight consists of monitoring agency EEO programs for trends, patterns, and overall fitness of the complaint process. Consultants are available to assist department EEO Officers in their efforts to implement effective EEO Programs and to develop action plans for challenging circumstances as they arise. ​​​​

​​Discrimin​​​​ation Complaint Tracking System (DCTS​)

Reporting EEO Complaint Data

​​​The Discrimination Complaint Tracking System (DCTS) is California’s system of record to track and monitor statewide discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and denial of reasonable accommodation complaint activities. Departments log pertinent complaint data and provide quarterly reporting to the OCR. CalHR uses the ​DCTS to collect and report statewide data relevant ​to EEO complaints.

​​Note:​​ Employees wishing to file a complaint may contact their department EEO Officer, the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, or the Equal Employment Opportunity ​Commission. CalHR does not receive or process EEO complaints.

​Accessing DCTS

​Strict guidelines exist to protect against unauthorized access to DCTS. Department users are advised to read and follow Security and Access Guidelines at all times. To obtain new user authorization or change access from one department to another, a signed Access Request Form​​ and Security Agreement are required to be submitted to the OCR. The Access Request Form is also used to deactivate users.  All access requests must be approved by CalHR OCR prior to training.

​​Note: User access credentials are approved only after completion of DCTS training.​
