If you think that you have been discriminated against, please watch our video presentation, What you Need to Know Before Filing a Charge. These videos are in the process of being updated and do not yet refer to sexual orientation. If, after viewing the video presentation, you decide that you wish to file a Charge of Discrimination, you will need to complete an Intake Packet.
Assuming that you are within the time limits allowed for filing a discrimination claim based on a protected class, the first step in the complaint process is to complete a Colorado Civil Rights Division Intake Packet. We have an Intake Packet for each of the areas that we cover - Employment, Housing, and Public Accommodations. The Intake Packet will give us the information that we need to draft a charge.
It is important that you complete all of the required forms in the Intake Packet and that you provide a detailed narrative account of the facts, the adverse action(s), and the basis for your claim. Failure to complete all forms may result in an untimely delay in the processing of your claim. Remember, completing an Intake Packet does not constitute filing a charge or meeting the filing deadline but is the start of the intake process.
Important Notice: Submission of the Intake Packet DOES NOT constitute the filing of a Charge of Discrimination. Several additional steps must be taken after the filing of the Intake Packet in order for a Charge of Discrimination to be drafted and filed. Therefore, it is important that you submit the Intake Packet well before the deadline. Please call or email the Division with any questions.
