The EEOC has announced the expansion of its Public Portal
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced the expansion of its EEOC Public Portal to allow federal employees and applicants to file and manage requests for hearings and appeals of their federal equal employment opportunity (EEO) complaints.
The EEOC Public Portal allows federal employees and applicants (complainants) to create an account in order to submit an online request for a hearing or to file an appeal of their discrimination complaint. The Public Portal also permits these complainants to:
Identify an attorney or representative and provide their contact information
Submit and receive documents supporting their case
Check the status of their case
Update contact information
Respond to an invitation to engage in alternative dispute resolution at the hearings stage
The EEOC is also notifying complainants with pending cases that they may register in the Public Portal to manage their cases.
