EEO Discrimination Issues

Federal Employee Critical Deadlines In The EEO Process

Federal government employee must contact an EEO Counselor within 45 days from the day the discrimination occurred.

Federal government employee has 15 days from the date the employee receives notice from the EEO Counselor about how to file a complaint to file a complaint against the agency.

The agency will review the complaint and decide whether or not the case should be dismissed. If the agency does not dismiss your case, an investigation will be conducted. Once the investigation has been concluded, the agency will issue a notice giving you two options:

Option 1: You can request a hearing before an EEOC Judge.

Option 2: You can request the agency to issue a decision without a hearing.

A federal government employee who wishes to request a hearing must request the hearing in writing within 30 days from the day the employee received the notice about the hearing right.
