A weeklong event beginning Monday will be centered around the standards of conduct and internal controls. Compliance Week provides training and panels to city employees and information to the public covering an array of topics from Equal Employment Opportunities to protections under the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
“The City of Chattanooga is required to conduct annual training for city employees and provide constituents information in relation to Title VI,” said Wade Hinton, Chattanooga City attorney.
