Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, all employees have the right to equal federal employment opportunities regardless of the following:
If you believe that you are a victim of unlawful discrimination based upon race, sex, national origin, religion, age, disability and/or prior equal employment opportunity activity, Tully Rinckey PLLC can help.
Our experienced attorneys can represent you at every stage of the EEO process, from filing the initial EEO complaint through settlement, trial and mediation. Call us today at (202) 787-1900 to set up a consultation with one of our EEO attorneys or e-mail email@example.com.
Initiating a discrimination claim:
- You must contact an EEO counselor at your agency within 45 calendar days of the discriminatory action. This deadline usually cannot be waived.
- You may elect alternative dispute resolution (ADR) or counseling. If unsuccessful, you may then file a formal EEO complaint with your federal agency.
- The agency must conduct an investigation unless your complaint is dismissed.
If your complaint contains an issue that the Merit System Protection Board has jurisdiction over, your case is called a “mixed case” and may proceed before the MSPB. For all other EEO matters, once the agency completes its investigation you may request an EEO hearing before a judge. The agency must complete its investigation within 180 days from the date you filed your formal complaint.
You may file in federal court at any point after the formal complaint has been pending for more than 180 days.
