Is Filing With The NEOC My Only Option?

Where federal law applies, you can also file with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC enforces Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which includes discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability. To file with the EEOC: You must contact the nearest office by mail or in person. The nearest office from Lincoln is in Kansas City. The address is Gateway Tower II, 4th & State Ave., 9th Floor, Kansas City, KS, 66101. The phone number is (913) 551-5655. See http://www.eeoc.gov/facts/howtofil.html for more information. You must file within 180 days from when the alleged discrimination occurred. The deadline may be extended to 300 days if the incident is also a violation of state or local law.
