What is the County of Montereys Discrimination Complaint Ordinance?
The Monterey County Discrimination Complaint Ordinance (the “Ordinance”) was approved and adopted by the Board of Supervisors in April, 1991. The Ordinance and the accompanying Discrimination Complaint Procedures contain the process that employees or agents of the County must follow when receiving and/or investigating complaints of discrimination. The Ordinance also discusses the types of discrimination that are prohibited by the County. The Ordinance states that co-workers, employees and the public cannot be treated differently or unfairly because of their protected class status.
