The data requested on this survey is for statistical purposes only to meet statutory requirements and will not be used for any employment decisions.

All employees are requested to voluntarily self-identify veteran status, race/ethnicity and disability status so CalHR can monitor and evaluate the provision of equal employment opportunity and non-discriminatory employment practices within the state civil service.
