EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IS THE LAW
 

        It is against the law for a recipient of Federal financial assistance to discriminate on the following bases:

  • Against any individual in the United States, based on race, color, religion, sex, (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions, sex stereotyping, transgender status, and gender identity), national origin (including limited English proficiency), age, disability, political affiliation or belief; and

  • Against any beneficiary of, the applicant to, or participant in programs financially assisted under Title I - of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), based on the beneficiary's citizenship/status as a lawfully admitted immigrant authorized to work in the United States or his or her participation in any WIOA Title I - financially assisted program or activity.

    The Federal financial recipient providing services must not discriminate against customers in any of the following areas:

  • Deciding who will be admitted, or have access, to any WIOA Title I - financially assisted program or activity;

  • Providing opportunities in, or treating any person about, such a program or activity; or

  • We are making employment decisions in the administration of, or in connection with, such a program or activity.​

    Recipients of federal financial assistance must take reasonable steps to ensure that communications with individuals with disabilities are as effective as communications with others. This means that, upon request and at no cost to the individual, recipients are required to provide appropriate auxiliary aids and services to qualified individuals with disabilities.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU BELIEVE YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED DISCRIMINATION


If you think you have been subjected to discrimination under a WIOA Title I - financially assisted program or activity, you must file a complaint within 180 days from the date of the alleged violation with either the:

  • Recipient's LWIA EO Officer 

  • State WIOA EO Officer, or

  • Civil Rights Center (CRC)

To file a complaint, download the Discrimination Complaint Form (in English or Spanish). Once complete, either present the form to the staff at a local Missouri Job Center, one of its affiliates or mail it directly to the local or state EO Officer using the contact information below.

  • If you file a complaint at the State or local workforce area, you must wait either until the recipient issues a written Notice of Final Action or until 90 days have passed (whichever is sooner) before filing with the CRC at the above address.

  • If the State or local workforce area does not send a written Notice of Final Action within 90 days of the day on which the complaint was filed, you do not have to wait for the recipient to issue that Notice before filing a complaint with CRC. However, you must file your CRC complaint within 30 days of the 90-day deadline (in other words, within 120 days after the day on which you filed your original complaint with the recipient).

  • If you receive a written Notice of Final Action on your complaint, but you are dissatisfied with the decision or resolution, you may file a complaint with CRC. You must file your CRC complaint within 30 days of the date you received the Notice of Final Action.
