Floridians are entitled by law to not be discriminated in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or marital status
It is against the law to discriminate in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or marital status.
An employee or an applicant for employment may file a complaint when:
• The alleged discriminatory act occurred within the past 365 days
• There is no federal or local agency responsible for accepting alleged complaints of discrimination.
Call, write or visit the Commission within 365 days of the date in which the alleged act of discrimination occurred and describe the situation you feel was discriminatory. An experienced Intake Counselor will listen, advise and assist you accordingly.
The Commission works cooperatively with its federal counterpart, the EEOC, and most cases are dual filed.
