    Employees of Del Mar College  
    Del Mar College provides a complaint procedure for the prompt and equitable investigation and resolution of complaints of unlawful retaliation, or discrimination and/or harassment of employees based on their race, color, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity/transgender status, sexual orientation), age, national origin, religion, disability, genetic information, veteran or military status.  DMC Policy B5.50 may be used by any employee of the College.  Complaint forms may be obtained from the District Complaint Coordinator in the Office of Human Resources.

    Students of Del Mar College   
    If any Del Mar College employee receives a complaint of discrimination or harassment from a student, he or she will immediately notify the Dean of Student Engagement and Retention.    

    External Complaints of Discrimination  
    If you believe that you have been discriminated against at work because of your race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information, you can file a Charge of Discrimination.  An individual, organization, or agency may file a charge on behalf of another person in order to protect the aggrieved person's identity.  There are time limits for filing a charge.  Job applicants have similar protections, but a different complaint process.  Visit the EEOC websitefor contact information and further guidance on how to file a charge of employment discrimination.

    ADA Accommodation 
    Human Resources must be advised of any disability-based limitations to enable College assistance and determine eligibility for reasonable accommodation(s).  The College is under no obligation to provide reasonable accommodation unless an individual properly identifies him/herself as a person with disability-based limitations requiring an accommodation.

    Reasonable accommodation(s) will be granted, as determined by the College in consultation with the employee and, if necessary, his/her medical providers, unless any such accommodation(s) will cause an undue hardship for the College.  All information relating to an accommodation request is considered confidential.  Supervisors must contact Human Resources for assistance in determining the needs of employees requesting accommodations.
