What are a Respondent's rights and responsibilities?

If a charge is filed, you have a right:

  • To have a clear, coherent written statement of the charge.
  • To know the status of your case and who is working on it.
  • To have written notice of any hearing or final action.
  • To appeal any final decision.
  • To have an attorney present at any stage, if you so desire.

You have a responsibility:

  • To supply and explain all relevant information, data, or papers to the investigator, upon request.
  • To answer all telephone or mail inquiries from the Commission. These will be as convenient and infrequent as possible.
  • To attend all meetings and hearings. We will try to accommodate your schedule if we can.
