What if I don t agree with the notice of intent to levy?

Department of Labor – OFCCP – How to File a Complaint


Because of temporary technical difficulties, the online complaint form cannot be electronically submitted. Please complete the form and submit it by mail or fax to the appropriate OFCCP regional office, or deliver it in person to any OFCCP district or field office.

How to File a Complaint

Do you believe that an employer doing business with the Federal Government has discriminated against you in hiring or employment? Do you believe that the reason for the discrimination was based on your race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or status as a protected veteran? Did you ask about or discuss your pay or that of a co worker and you were fired, demoted, or disciplined because of it? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you can file a complaint with the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). An individual, organization, or group can even file a complaint on your behalf, or for anyone who may be the victim of employment discrimination by an employer doing business with the Federal Government.

You must file a complaint alleging discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or based on compensation inquiries, discussions, or disclosures, within 180 days from the date of the alleged discrimination, unless the time for filing is extended for good cause shown. Some examples of what might be good cause include, the existence of some extraordinary circumstance that prohibited you from filing before the deadline such as a significant health issue, military deployment, incarceration, or possibly being unaware of the discrimination. These are only a few of the possible examples of good cause. If your complaint alleges a violation based on disability or status as a protected veteran, it must be filed within 300 days unless the time for filing is extended for good cause shown. Extensions of the filing time require approval by the Director of OFCCP.

You should include a description of the alleged discrimination and any other related information that would help OFCCP investigate your complaint. OFCCP will be revising its complaint form and instructions because of recent regulatory changes. Until that process is completed, please mark the box next to sex to allege discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. If you are alleging discrimination based on discussing pay, please write pay secrecy in the place where the other bases for an OFCCP violation are listed and indicate that pay secrecy is the basis of the complaint clearly in the narrative section of the complaint form. As is always the case, you should describe the actions that you believe resulted in the discrimination in the narrative section.
