Reports

In order to ensure Cook County’s commitment to transparency, reports on employment actions and monitoring activities are available as follows:


Quarterly Employment Action Reports

 


Compliance Officer’s Semi-Annual Reports

These reports are issued every March 15th and September 15th.

 


Incident Report

After an allegation of non-compliance with the Employment Plan is investigated, the Compliance Officer issues an Incident Report which sets forth the nature of the complaint, and the findings of the investigation that may include non-compliance with the Employment Plan, or recommendations of specific corrective action.   The report is sent to the Office of the Independent Inspector General and a redacted copy of the Incident Report to the Chief of BHR and the President.

 

BHR Report

The BHR Report is issued after the President's Office and the Chief of BHR review the Incident Report that contains a finding of violation of or non-compliance with the Employment Plan or includes a recommendation of corrective action with the Department Head of the Department involved in the complaint.  The BHR Report either confirms implementation of the Compliance Officer’s recommended action, or explains why the recommended action was not implemented and describes the alternative action the President has elected to take and the specific reasons for such alternative action. 


President's Report

After the Compliance Officer and BHR refer instances of Political Contact or Unlawful Political Discrimination to the Office of the Independent Inspector General, the OIIG will issue a summary report.  The President and the Chief of BHR shall review the OIIG Summary Report with the Department Head of the Department involved in the complaint.  If the OIIG Summary Report contains a finding that an Unlawful Political Contact or Unlawful Political Discrimination has occurred or includes a recommendation of corrective action, within 30 days of receipt of the OIIG Summary Report, the President or his or her designee shall prepare a President’s Report, which shall include the following:


a. A description of the complaint and any other information received pertinent to the investigation;
b. A description of the findings discovered in the course of the investigation;
c. Recommendations of OIIG for correction of the Unlawful Political Contact or Unlawful Political Discrimination,
    if applicable; 
d. Such other information as the President may deem relevant to the investigation or resulting recommendations; and
e. A statement (i) confirming implementation of the OIIG’s recommended action or (ii) an explanation of why the
    recommended action was not implemented and a description of any alternative action the President has elected to
    take and the specific reasons for such alternative action.
