Sex- or Gender-Based Harassment and Discrimination Unit (SGHIU)

The mission of the unit is to conduct prompt, independent investigations of all allegations of sex- or gender-based harassment and discrimination, as defined by State and Federal law. Each complaint will be evaluated and investigated by trained personnel using consistent investigative procedures.

The Unit provides:

  • Independent investigators that offer a neutral environment for employees to share their concerns.
  • Dedicated well trained investigators who can complete investigations in a more timely and in-depth manner as compared to agency staff that often have many other competing duties in addition to addressing employee complaints.
  • The Investigation Unit offers continuous feedback to The Department of Administration's, Division of Human Resource Management team and other State agencies regarding corrective actions and specific training needs.
