The Civil Rights Division (CRD) enforces state and federal laws. The division conducts investigations into discrimination in employment and housing across the state.
Our training team provides discrimination training to employers and fair housing training sessions. We also provide personnel policy reviews of state agencies and institutions of higher education.
CRD provides information on unlawful employment, best housing practices, how to file a complaint, and how to request training.

State Agency Personnel Policy & Procedures Review
The TWC Civil Rights Division reviews personnel policies and procedures for Texas state agencies and public higher education institutions (excluding junior colleges) on a six-year schedule to ensure compliance with Texas Labor Code Chapter 21 (see Subchapter I, Personnel Policies & Procedures).
When your agency is due for review, we send the agency head a notification letter and request:
- Copies of the Personnel Policies & Procedures System (PPPS) in advance of the on-site review.
- The information needed to prepare the contract for the performance of the review.
If the review identifies no issues, we send the agency a letter certifying compliance with Texas Labor Code Chapter 21.
If the review identifies issues in your compliance with Texas Labor Code Chapter 21, we send the agency a recommendations letter. Your agency has 60 days to consider our recommendations and report to the Governor, the Legislature, the Legislative Budget Board, and CRD whether the agency implemented the recommendations and if not, state the reasons for rejecting any of the recommendations.
