Are complaints to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission anonymous?
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the federal enforcement agency for Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Once you file a charge against an employer with the EEOC, they will disclose to the employer that a charge has been accepted on the basis of an individual’s complaint so that the employer has the ability to address it. If you wish to remain anonymous, they will accept a charge that is filed on behalf of someone else who has been the victim of discrimination. A person or an organization can file the charge. In such cases, they usually do not tell the employer whom the charge was filed on behalf of, but they do tell the employer the name of the person or organization who filed the charge.
