Filing a Discrimination Complaint

​Any DCFS employee or applicant for employment, any applicant or recipient of department services or any applicant or recipient of contractual services provided at the direction of DCFS may file a complaint.

If you feel that you have been discriminated against because of your race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, veteran status, national origin, ancestry, language, handicap/disability, military discharge, or marital status in any terms of employment, conditions, compensation or privileges of employment, opportunities and/or service delivery practices, and you have tried unsuccessfully to resolve the problem with the immediate supervisor, you can file a complaint with the Office of Affirmative Action. Complaints must be filed within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory act.
