If you believe you have been discriminated against at your place of employment, you have the legal right to file a complaint and pursue a claim for monetary damages or other remedy. You may have a valid EEOC claim if you have been discriminated against based on:
In addition to discrimination based on any of the above, you are able to pursue actions based on certain protected activities. This includes retaliation for filing a previous EEO complaint, acting as a witness for another EEO complainant, and opposing EEO violations.
