Hearings at EEOC
Requests for hearing must be sent by the complainant to the EEOC office, as indicated in the Office of Diversity and Inclusive Workforce Management's (ODIWM) accept/dismiss letter, with a copy to ODIWM. Within 15 calendar days of receipt of the request for a hearing, the agency must provide a copy of the complaint file to EEOC.
Hearings are considered part of the investigative process, and are closed to the public. The AJ conducts the hearing and receives relevant information or documents as evidence.
