  Filing a Title VI Complaint
 

 

  HOW IS A DISCRIMINATION COMPLAINT FILED?
 

Complaints may be filed by any person who believes that he or she has been excluded from participation in, been denied the benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination under any Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) service, program or activity, and believes the discrimination is based upon race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, economic status or limited English proficiency. Complaints will be accepted in writing only, and may be filed with ITD’s Equal Employment Opportunity Office in Boise.

   
  A signed written complaint must be submitted within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory act (or latest occurrence). Individuals may also file complaints directly with the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and/or the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) within the 180 day timeframe. The complaint should contain:
 
  • Name, address, telephone number, and signature of complainant.
  • Facts and circumstances surrounding the claimed discrimination, including date of allegations, and basis of complaint (i.e., race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability).
  • Any names of persons, if known, that the investigator could contact for additional information to support or clarify the allegations.
  • Corrective action being sought by the complainant.
   
  HOW WILL A COMPLAINT BE RESOLVED?
 

Within ten days of receiving a written complaint, ITD’s EEO Office will acknowledge receipt of the allegation, inform the complainant of action taken or proposed action to process the allegation. If it is determined that ITD has jurisdiction of the complaint, it will investigate and make recommendations for resolving it. Otherwise, the complaint will be forwarded to the FHWA/FTA for investigation.

   
  WHAT IF A RECIPIENT RETALIATES AGAINST THE COMPLAINANT FOR FILING A COMPLAINT?
 

Federal laws prohibit a recipient of federal funds from retaliating against any person who has made a complaint, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing. Any complaints of retaliation should be directed to ITD’s EEO Office immediately at:
