Office of Civil Rights
The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) ensures CDI's compliance with State and federal laws relating to discrimination, sexual harassment and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibit discrimination and harassment of employees, applicants for employment, clients, visitors and others based on certain enumerated protected characteristics. The OCR updates and issues policy statements relating to discrimination and monitors compliance with all applicable civil rights laws. The OCR also ensures that all CDI staff are trained to comply with these policies and practices in the employment, development and treatment of its employees, and the consumers that we serve.
