Sec. 10500 - Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH)

§ 10500. Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH)

The Political Reform Act (Gov. Code, § 8100 et seq.) requires state and local government agencies to adopt and promulgate conflict of interest codes. The Fair Political Practices Commission has adopted a regulation (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 2, § 18730) that contains the terms of a standard conflict of interest code, which can be incorporated by reference in an agency's regulation. After public notice and hearing, the standard code may be amended by the Fair Political Practices Commission to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act.

Therefore, the terms of California of Regulations, title 2, section 18730 and any amendments to it duly adopted by the Fair Political Practices Commission are hereby incorporated by reference. This regulation, and the attached appendices designating positions and establishing disclosure requirements, shall constitute the conflict of interest code for the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH).

The Director must file his/her statement of economic interests electronically with the Fair Political Practices Commission. All other individuals holding designated positions must file their statements with DFEH. All statements must be made available for public inspection and reproduction under Government Code Section 81008.
