The Ethics Commission has the authority to investigate violations of state and City laws regarding campaign financing, lobbying, and governmental ethics. Complaints regarding other laws are referred to appropriate agencies. This complaint form does not constitute a written request to commence a civil action under Los Angeles Municipal Code sections 49.5.19(B)(3) or 49.7.38(B)(3). If you have a question regarding whether your complaint is within our jurisdiction, please contact us.

You may make your complaint anonymously. If you do give us your name, we will not release it unless we receive your permission, we refer the complaint to another appropriate agency, or we are ordered by a court to release it. You are protected against retaliation for blowing the whistle on your coworkers and superiors.

Investigations can be complex and can take many months to complete. We do not confirm or deny the existence of any complaint or investigation, and we do not provide updates on the status of complaints. We will not contact you unless we need additional information.

REPORT A VIOLATION

  • Report a Violation of Campaign, Contract, Ethics, or Lobbying Laws

    When submitting a whistleblower complaint, please provide as much detail as possible, such as names, dates, locations, and other supporting information or documents. Providing details is critical in order for us to conduct an investigation, especially if you choose to remain anonymous. Because we may need additional information from you, it is always helpful if you provide your contact information.

    By law, our investigations are confidential. We cannot confirm or deny the existence of any complaint or investigation, and we cannot provide status updates on complaints. However, we may refer information in a complaint to another law enforcement agency. Please bear in mind that fact patterns can be complex, that respondents are provided substantial due process rights, and that it may take some time to resolve an investigation.

    Thank you for taking the time to submit a complaint. City law protects you from retaliation for reporting potential violations.
