Indiana Discrimination Poster
The Indiana Discrimination Poster is a labor law posters poster by the Indiana Department Of Workforce Development. This is an optional poster, so while it is recommended that you post this if it is relevant to your employees, you are not required to by the Department Of Workforce Development.
This poster serves as a notice to inform employees about their rights in the event of workplace discrimination. It contains guidelines on how employees can file a complaint should they witness or be a victim to discrimination on the job.

Know Your rights! F ederal laws protect you, and other people, from discrimination by some or all of the programs of the business, organization, or office where you are reading this poster. The Civil Rights Center (known as “CRC”), in the U.S. Department of Labor, is in charge of overseeing many of these laws. It does not matter if you are a customer wanting or needing services; an employee of the business, organization, or office; a person applying for a job; or a member of the general public. If you have contact with a program that is covered by one of the laws, the program cannot discriminate against you. CRC has designed this poster to explain: • what your rights are, and • where you can file a complaint if you believe the law has been violated. v Discrimination is a gainst the Law These types of discrimination are against the law A program that is covered by one of the laws mentioned at the top of this poster is not allowed to discriminate on any of the following bases (ty\ pes of discrimination): For customers, applicants, employees, and the general public: • race • color • national origin • religion • sex • age • disability • political affiliation or belief For customers only: • citizenship or status to work legally in the US • being part of any program that gets a specific type of “financial assistance” from the Federal government under a specific law (the Workforce Invest - ment Act). How can I file a discrimination complaint? If you think: • a program of this business, organization, or office has discriminated against you, or against any specific group of people, and • the type of discrimination you think happened is on the list you w\ ill find elsewhere on this poster, then you have the right to file a discrimination complaint. Is there a time limit for filing a complaint? Yes. You must file a discrimination complaint within 180 days of the day on which the discrimination took pl\ ace. The only person who can let you file your complaint late is the Director of the Civil Rights Center (CRC), in Washington, DC. If you want to file a complaint more than 180 days after the discrimination, you must write to the CRC Director, explain why you should be allowed to file your complaint late, and ask for permission. Look for the address for CRC on this poster. What should the complaint include? The complaint must be filed in writing. It should include this information: • Your name • Your address • Your signature • The name and address of the program, business, organization, or office you think discriminated against you or against a specific group of people. • The date when you think the discrimination took place. • The types of discrimination you think are involved in the case (for example, race, sex, disability, age). • The names of any people who were involved in the discrimination, including any witnesses. You must also explain what happened, and why you think discrimination took place. Do I have to file the complaint myself? You may file the complaint through a “representative.” Your representative may be a lawyer, a family member, a social worker, a union steward, or anyone else you choose to file the complaint for you. If a representative files your complaint for you, these three things must be on the complaint. • First, your representative’s name must be on the complaint. • Second, the complaint must say that your representative is filing the complaint for you. • Third, you must personally sign the complaint. ! !
