WHAT TO DO IF YOU BELIEVE DISCRIMINATION HAS OCCURRED
There are strict time limits for filing charges of employment discrimination. To preserve the ability of EEOC to act on your behalf and to protect your right to file
private lawsuit, should you ultimately need to, you should contact EEOC promptly when discrimination is suspected:
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), 1-800-669-4000 (toll-free) or 1-800-669-6820 (toll-free TTY number for individual
with hearing impairments). EEOC field office information is available at www.eeoc.gov or
in most telephone directories in the U.S. Government or Federal Government section. Additional information about EEOC, including
information about charge filing, is available at www.eeoc.gov.
Retaliation is prohibited against a person who files a complaint of discrimination, participates in an
OFCCP proceeding, or otherwise opposes discrimination under these Federal laws.
