EEO Complaint Process
Any current employee, applicant for employment, or former employee of Headquarters Marine Corps and Serviced Commands who believe he or she has been discriminated against because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age (over 40), physical or mental disability, or reprisal is entitled to consult an EEO counselor to try to resolve the matter.
The matter must be brought to the attention of an EEO counselor within 45 calendar days from the date the alleged act occurred, the effective date of an alleged discriminatory personnel action, or the date that the individual knew or reasonably should have known that it occurred.
The EEO counselor is required to make whatever inquiries are necessary to seek a solution to the matter on an informal basis. Individuals have the right to remain anonymous during the informal counseling state. If, after 30 days, the counselor is unable to resolve the matter to the satisfaction of the individual involved, the counselor will conduct a final interview meeting. The counselor will inform the individual in writing of his or her right to file a formal complaint, the applicable time requirements, and the names and addresses of officials authorized to receive formal complaints and discrimination.
If you are a current employee, applicant for employment, or a former employee, you may contact the EEO counselor at APF (760) 725-3845 or NAF (760) 830-6597 to initiate informal EEO counseling.
