You may optionally leave your contact information below.

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.

Please provide the information requested. The more information you give, the more helpful your complaint will be. Thank you for taking the time to submit your complaint.
