How to File a Claim with the EEOC

Federal employees who have suffered from wrongful treatment, including unlawful termination, harassment, or other adverse personnel actions due to their race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, disability, or prior EEO activity have a right to file an EEO complaint at their agency and seek back pay, damages, and/or other remedies.

How to initiate a discrimination complaint:

  • Contact an EEOC counselor at your Agency within 45 calendar days of the incident. You may elect to participate in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) or traditional EEO counseling.
  • If the issue is not resolved, you can file a formal complaint with the agency's EEOC office. The agency will conduct an investigation.
  • After the investigation, you may request an EEOC hearing with a judge a final agency decision or file a lawsuit in court.
  • You have the option to appeal any decision if you disagree with it.
  • The final and last resort is a lawsuit in federal court.

Before a lawsuit can be filed, a worker must go through the formal administrative EEO complaint process for at least 180 days.

The Equal Employment Office handles complaints of employment discrimination and harassment involving:

  • Disability
  • Age
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Gender
  • Race
  • Color
  • Pregnancy
