Welcome to the Personnel Department

The Personnel Department maintains a merit system that provides equal opportunity for all City of San Diego applicants and employees. An employee, contract worker, volunteer or job applicant who believes that he or she has been discriminated against at work can file a complaint of discrimination with the City of San Diego Equal Employment Investigations Office (EEIO).Learn More.
