Will I have to testify?
A complainant generally does not have to testify in any formal hearing. The exceptions to this are if you inform us of actions taken by employees that are of a criminal nature, and the investigation of your complaint is sustained. There may be a chance that your testimony would be used in a court proceeding against an employee, if the District Attorney chooses to file a criminal complaint.

Employees are entitled to an administrative appeal to any imposed disciplinary action. If your complaint is sustained and the employee is disciplined and then appeals the discipline, you may be contacted and requested to testify in an administrative hearing before an arbitrator.
