Confidentiality and Retaliation

The provisions of the New Jersey State Policy Prohibiting Discrimination, Harassment or Hostile Environments in the Workplace require that all complaints and related investigations be confidential. Every individual involved in the investigation process is obligated to maintain confidentiality. This Policy also prohibits retaliation against anyone who files a complaint or participates in a complaint investigation.

Who can file

Any employee, job applicant, or other individual doing business with a New Jersey State department, agency, commission or college may file a complaint of discrimination or harassment with the EEO/AA Officer of the state entity in which the alleged discrimination/harassment occurred.

If there is a conflict of interest, the complaint may be filed with the Division of EEO/AA. In addition to filing an internal complaint, individuals have the right to file complaints simultaneously with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and/or the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR). Please be advised that both agencies have time limits for filing complaints. For more information, please visit their websites: and
