Is my ADA Complaint with the Department of Justice anonymous?

The Department of Justice (DOJ) does require a complainant to file personal information when filing a complaint. If the DOJ does look to seek action, many times in the form of mediation, it would contact you and the entity you filed a complaint about to determine if both parties want to move forward to resolve the issue. Here is what the DOJ has to say on disclosure. The DOJ Disability Rights Section will not disclose your name or other identifying information about you unless it is necessary for enforcement activities against an entity alleged to have violated federal law, required to be disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552, disclosure is permitted pursuant to the Privacy Act, or is otherwise required by law.
