§ 10065. Departmental Appeal.
(a) Any person who wishes to appeal the department's decision to reject a complaint or close a case may appeal to the director, or to the director's designee, within 10 days following notification of the department's decision. The appeal shall set forth specifically and in full detail the grounds upon which the appealing party considers the department's determination to be unjust or unlawful, and every issue to be considered by the director or the director's designee. The director or the director's designee may consider any issue relating to the initial decision and may modify, affirm, or reverse the decision, including by reopening the investigation. The director's designee in responding to appeals shall be a person who does not directly supervise the department employee who made the initial decision to reject a complaint or close a case. The decision of the director or the director's designee is final and may not be appealed to any other department employee, officer, or other individual delegated any function, power, or duty of the department.
(b) When an appeal is completed after the statutory time limit and the department has determined that discrimination has occurred or is about to occur, the department shall schedule a conciliation or mediation conference.
(c) Any concerns regarding the handling of an open complaint shall be directed to the district administrator or, if there is no district administrator, the regional administrator of the office where the complaint is being investigated.
