Filing a Discrimination Complaint

EEO Contract Complaints

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and its contractors shall not discriminate in the award and performance of federal aid contracts. ADOT will advise each contractor, through state contract specifications, (FHWA 1273) that failure to carry out these requirements shall constitute a breach of contract and may result in termination of the contract or such remedy, as ADOT deems appropriate.

Contractors are responsible for not only the Equal Employment Opportunity compliance of their own company, but also the compliance of their subcontractors.

A signed, written complaint must be submitted within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory act (or latest occurrence). Complaints may be filed with these agencies:

All complaints should contain these elements:

  • The name, address, telephone number and signature of the complainant
  • The facts and circumstances surrounding the claimed discrimination, including date of allegations, and the basis of the complaint (e.g., race, color, national origin, disability)
  • Any names of persons, if known, whom the investigator could contact for additional information to support or clarify the allegations
  • The corrective action being sought by the complainant

If you require assistance completing a complaint form please contact 602.712.8946.
