What Is the EEOC?

You deserve a workplace free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission protects workers throughout the United States who have faced unfair treatment on the job. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a federal government agency that enforces federal laws that make discrimination illegal. The EEOC accepts complaints regarding workplace discrimination and investigates those situations to determine if an employer violated a law.

A Santa Monica EEOC Attorney is Here for You

The EEOC is a federal agency that operates similarly to California state agencies. Thus, in many situations, you will file a state claim first. However, an EEOC complaint is always an option. To determine whether filing with the EEOC is in your best interest, you should contact an employment lawyer.
Types of Discrimination the
EEOC Handles
The EEOC investigates discrimination at all levels of the employment process. Unfair hiring practices, compensation, promotions, benefits, and recruiting are all under the EEOC authority. If you are denied an employment opportunity due to discrimination based on any protected class, you can contact the EEOC to handle the situation. Protected classes include:
How to File an

EEOC Inquiry?

How do I file an EEOC complaint against my employer? You can file an employment discrimination inquiry through the EEOC portal, called the EEOC Public Portal. The portal also allows you to schedule an intake interview. The interview will take place with an EEOC staff member who will work to determine if your employer violated any federal discrimination laws. They will collect information from you and explain your rights and responsibilities. They will also inform you about what will happen after you file a charge. You may then decide if you want to file a discrimination charge against your employer.
