Class Action Complaint Process

A class action complaint of discrimination differs significantly from an individual complaint by definition, time requirements and method of processing. Specifically, class action complaints allege that the class (or group of people), is being negatively affected by an agency's personnel policy or practice which discriminates against the group on the basis of their common race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or physical or mental disability. The class may include employees, former employees or applicants for employment with NARA.

Because of the difference in time frames and procedures, contact for possible class action complaints should be made directly to the NARA Complaints Program Manager, Director EEO, or other member of the NARA EEO/Diversity Programs Office staff WITHIN 45 CALENDAR DAYS following the alleged discriminatory act. More detailed information is available on this process through the EEO Office.
