Submit employment discrimination complaints Friday


The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s mobile outreach center will visit the Youngstown unit of the NAACP on Friday to accept complaints of employment discrimination based on race, religion, sex, national origin, age (40 and older), disability or retaliation.

The EEOC considers retaliation the firing of a worker who complained about job discrimination, gave evidence in a job discrimination matter or filed a charge of job discrimination with the commission.

The unit prefers appointments, but officials said walk-ins are welcome. The local unit of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is located at 16 Wick Ave., Suite 721, in the old PNC Bank Building, downtown.

Call the local office at 330-782-9777, or email
