Abstract:DOT will utilize the forms to collect information necessary to process Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) discrimination complaints filed by individuals who are not Federal employees and are applicants for employment with the Department. These complaints are processed in accordance with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's regulations, 29 CFR part 1614, as amended. DOT will use the forms to: (a) request requisite information from the applicant for processing his or her EEO employment discrimination complaint; and (b) obtain information to identify an individual or his or her attorney or other representative, if appropriate. An applicant's filing of an EEO employment complaint is solely voluntary. DOT estimates that it takes an applicant approximately two and one-half hours to complete the forms.
Affected Public:Job applicants filing EEO employment discrimination complaints.
Annual Estimated Burden:25 hours.
Frequency of Collection:An applicant's filing of an EEO complaint is solely voluntary.
