The Office of Compliance is responsible for investigating allegations of discrimination. Federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, disability/handicap. State law prohibits discrimination on the basis of all those factors covered by federal law, as well as ancestry, creed, age, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, and parental status.
