Hiring Oversight

Hiring Oversight monitors City compliance with the General Hiring Plan, the Chicago Fire Department Hiring Plan for Uniformed Positions, the Chicago Police Department Hiring Plan for Sworn Titles, the Department of Law Hiring Process (included in the General Hiring Plan), and the OIG Hiring Procedures, all of which govern employment practices in the City. To ensure that the system is one of integrity, Hiring Oversight reviews, monitors, and audits key processes in the hiring plans. The section also receives and investigates complaints regarding the hiring process, including allegations of unlawful political discrimination and other improper considerations or influence in connection with any aspect of City hiring and other employment actions. Finally, Hiring Oversight receives and reviews escalations from the Department of Human Resources regarding anomalies that occur during the hiring process.
