Affirmative Action Guidelines.
Clarifying guidelines are presented for use by California community college districts in interpreting Title 5 of the California Administrative Code, which requires the adoption of employee affirmative action plans, including goals and timetables to increase the number of ethnic minorities and women in district employment. Following material on the legislative background of Title 5 and on the development of the guidelines in response to district requests, the report presents the entire chapter of Title 5 dealing with affirmative action integrated with explanatory guidelines. Subchapter 1 provides information on the rationale for and intent of affirmative action and defines key terms, such as "affirmative action plan,""business necessity,""protected groups," and "sexual harassment." In addition, this subchapter covers district affirmative action policy and plans, district evaluation and reports to the Chancellor, and minimum standards. Subchapter 2 deals with the responsibilities of the Chancellor with respect to assistance, reporting, and evaluation. Finally, subchapter 3 delineates district responsibilities in areas including affirmative action plan implementation, recruitment, job announcements, applicant pools, screening and selection procedures, handicapped employees, sexual harassment policy, complaint procedures, workforce and utilization analyses, corrective action, goals and timetables, and affirmative action advisory committees.
