The “Type” drop down will allow you to select a predefined Type for your Matter. In the DFEH system, the main Matter Type will always be “Complaint”, so be sure and select it.
The Rate Type will allow you to set a predefined Matter Rate Type (MRT) for all billable Events pertaining to the current Matter. In doing this, you can expedite your billing. This field will not be used, as Matters in the DFEH system are unbilled.
The “Sub-type” Field will allow you to choose a specific Sub-Type for the Matter. For the DFEH system, these will be one of the following: CC54, Employment, Housing, Ralph, or Unruh. These sub-types will determine which fields are shown in the record; choosing one will bring up its own set of fields for data entry. Below, we will describe the fields that appear when "Employment" is selected, and their function.
