Filing a Complaint
Any employee, former employee, or applicant for employment can file an EEO complaint. An EEO complaint is an allegation of discrimination on the basis of age, color, disability (mental/physical), genetic information, national origin, race, religion, reprisal or sex. The first step in filing a complaint is to contact the EEO Office within 45 calendar days of the date of the matter alleged to be discriminatory or, in the case of a personnel action, within 45 calendar days of the effective date of the action.
If you believe you have been subjected to discrimination or if you have questions please contact the EEO Office as soon as possible.
Who can file: An employee, former employee, applicant for employment, certain contract employees, or group (class) of individuals who allege that they have been discriminated against because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical or mental disability, and\or reprisal in an employment matter, including Equal Pay Act complaints, subject to the control of the Army.
How to file: Contact the EEO Office within 45 days of the alleged act(s) of discrimination, or if a personnel action within 45 days of its effective date. This is a mandatory step in the individual and class complaint process. You may also see the EEO Officer who will assign a counselor to serve you. All days referred to in the EEO process are calendar days.
