Formal Complaint Processing
If EEO counseling or the ADR process does not result in a resolution of the issues raised, the employee may file a formal EEO complaint. The formal process must be initiated within 15 days of the termination of the informal process. The EEO counselor will provide a Formal Complaint Form and specific information needed to file. The complainant or a representative, who has been designated in writing, can file the complaint with CSOSA's EEO Office.
If the complaint is accepted, the EEO Office will initiate a full investigation of the issues. The complainant will receive a copy of the investigative report and may then request an agency decision on the merits of the case, or request a hearing before an Administrative Judge of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
Complaints may be filed by U.S. Mail, Federal Express, Hand Delivery, or via e-mail to:
