Tips for meeting our requirements in your submission

Be thorough

We ask that you be clear and specific, including as much detail as possible in your complaint. Explain precisely what happened, who was involved, and when and where it occurred.

We require the following:

  • Written statements from witnesses
  • Claim number, if a claim for injury or occupational disease relates to the discriminatory action
  • Full names, job titles, and any relevant dates or times

If you do not provide enough information for us to determine the complaint’s validity, we will be forced to dismiss it.

Be discrete

We are required to disclose to employers all information from discriminatory action complaints. We ask that you do not include information in your complaint that you aren’t willing to disclose to your employer.
