The County of Los Angeles Policy of Equity (CPOE) is intended to preserve the dignity and professionalism of the workplace as well as protect the right of employees to be free from discrimination, unlawful harassment, retaliation and inappropriate conduct toward others based on a protected status.

The Equity Process

The County Equity Investigations Unit (CEIU) of the Department of Human Resources (DHR) is responsible for promptly, fully and fairly investigating reports/complaints of conduct that potentially violate the CPOE. The CEIU provides comprehensive investigation reports to the County Equity Oversight Panel (CEOP) for review. Based on its review the CEOP makes recommendations to County Department Heads concerning the disposition and discipline recommended.
