Complainants will have 30 calendar days to work with the Counselor to seek resolution. Once the EEO Counseling process ends, the Counselor will issue an Exit Letter. If you wish to file a formal complaint with OHR, you must bring a copy of the Exit Letter and file the complaint with OHR within 15 calendar days of the Exit Letter. *NOTE* EEO Counseling is not required for claims regarding sexual harassment. Individuals may file those claims directly with OHR. For more information on the District government's policy on sexual harassment, visit the DC Department of Human Resources website here.
To file a formal claim, you MUST complete the Employment Discrimination Questionnaire. You can file the employment discrimination complaint online or download a PDF and mail it to the office, or visit OHR Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 am to 5:00 pm to fill out the Questionnaire in person.
Telephone calls to OHR do NOT constitute filing a complaint.
