How to File an EEOC Discrimination Complaint: Explore Your Options

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, protects you against workplace discrimination based on your race, religion, sex, national origin, disability, and age. When discriminated against at your place of employment, you may want to consider filing a charge with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the agency assigned to investigate any potential allegations of discrimination at the workplace. When it comes to exploring your options, it’s best practice to understand what steps need to be taken to file a complaint with the EEOC, understanding how the EEOC claim process works, and lastly, how to proceed if the EEOC chooses (or doesn’t choose) to pursue your complaint.
