Filing a Complaint
Before filing a charge, make sure the Prince William County Human Rights Commission covers your complaint.
The PWC Human Rights Commission does not cover:
- Allegations of discrimination that occur outside of Prince William County. (Note: the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park are not included in the jurisdiction of Prince William County.)
- Allegations of discrimination that occurred more than 365 days after the alleged action. Employment complaints filed after 300 days from the alleged action will not be dual-filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
- Investigations of discrimination concerning companies with fewer than six employees,; however, mediation services are offered, if both parties agree.
If you are not sure if your complaint is covered by the PWC Human Rights Commission, call:
To begin the process, review the Intake Instructions
and complete the Intake Questionnaire,
print it and mail it to us.
or print it, and fill it out by hand. You may also call the office at 703-792-4680, and ask that a form be sent to you.
An investigator will be assigned to your case. The investigator will review the information that you have provided and will contact you with information on the best way to handle your case.
