Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1614, provides that employees or applicants for employment who believe they have been discriminated against due to race, color, religion, sex (including sexual/gender harassment), national origin, age, genetic information, disability (physical or mental), or reprisal may file an EEO discrimination complaint.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) Office of Civil Rights provided procedures for processing complaints of Discrimination based on sexual orientation effective March 7, 1998. These procedures specify that DOT employees or applicants for DOT employment may also initiate a discrimination complaint based on sexual orientation. Regardless the aggrieved must still contact the FAA National Intake Unit.
* If the aggrieved person initially contacts the Office of Civil Rights or an EEO Counselor, or anyone connected to the EEO process, then that office or person shall refer the aggrieved person to the National Intake Unit and contact the National Intake Unit to ensure that the pre-complaint process has been initiated.
