The Department of Fair Employment and Housing is the state agency charged with enforcing California’s civil rights laws.
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 an employee.
The County Office of Equity investigates only claims relating to employees and contractors of the departments, commissions, and workplaces of the Los Angeles County Government.
