How should complaints of discrimination be filed?

Equal Employment Opportunity

For programs registered with the Office of Apprenticeship (OA), complaints are to be electronically filed with OA at ApprenticeshipEEOcomplaints@dol.gov.  You may also mail the complaint to the U.S. Department of Labor, as follows:  U.S. Department of Labor, Attention:  Apprenticeship EEO Complaints, Office of Apprenticeship, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C., 20210. Due to COVID-19, you are encouraged to email the complaint to ApprenticeshipEEOcomplaints@dol.govensure timely receipt of the complaint. 

If a complaint involves discrimination, OA will generally refer the complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to be addressed.  Apprentice complaints against a program registered with a State Apprenticeship Agency should be filed with that state agency.  Details regarding the process are available on the Inform Apprentices Equal Employment Opportunity webpage.
