Discrimination Complaint Process 2 The Discrimination Complaint Process Certain criteria has to be met in order for John Doe to file a discrimination complaint against his employer. As an employee, John has rights that he can exercise and that the employer must acknowledge. The following text outlines the discrimination complaint and civil litigation processes John Doe must face in order to file a discrimination complaint against his employer . Filing the Complaint First, John must make a decision on whether or not he will proceed with an official complaint of discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). According to the EEOC, a discrimination complaint must be filed in person or by mail within 180 days of the alleged violation. Once filed, John becomes the claimant and his employer, becomes the respondent. A notice containing information about the complaint is provided to the respondent within 10 days of filing. John Doe could have also filed his complaint with the local Fair Employment Practices Agency (FEPA). According to www.eeoc.gov, the EEOC will file a dual claim with the local FEPA when the complaint is also covered under local or state law in an effort to avoid duplication of work. The EEOC waits 60 days after filing the dual claim before it proceeds with the complaint. The EEOC then reviews the case in order to determine if the case is a candidate for mediation. A complex or weak case cannot be considered for mediation. If applicable, the next step is a mediation attempt. If not, then the EEOC will proceed to investigate.
