Information obtained from individuals who contact MCCR is confidential and will not be revealed to the employer until the individual files a charge of discrimination. When an individual contacts MCCR, they will be asked to provide information which may include the following:

  • The individual's name, address, telephone number, date of birth
  • Social Security Number (optional)
  • Name, address and telephone number of the employer
  • Employer's approximate number of employees
  • Date(s) of harm
  • Employer's explanation for its actions (if available)
  • Why the individual believes that the action taken against him/her was discriminatory
  • Names of individuals who were treated more favorably (if applicable)
  • This information will be used for record-keeping purposes and to determine whether the situation is covered by EEOC. EEOC employees are subject to strict confidentiality requirements by law.

Once a charge is filed, the individual's name and basic information about the allegations of discrimination will be disclosed to the employer ONLY.  By law,  MCCR cannot release information to the general public about the case until the matter reaches the stage of public hearing. 

Filing Anonymously

It is possible to file a complaint of discrimination anonymously, but there are a few things to keep in mind. Choosing to remain anonymous may make it difficult for the Commission to conduct a thorough investigation, as we may be unable to contact you for more information. Therefore, it's important to consider the potential impact of anonymity on the investigation before making a decision.
