EEO Complaint Process

The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) manages the Department of Commerce’s Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaint process, with oversight from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) -- an independent Federal agency. This fact sheet provides an overview of how individual complaints of discrimination are processed. Procedures differ in mixed case complaints, which raise issues that may be appealed to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).
