Help with Listen Feature Help with Listen Feature

This guidance from the Office for Civil Rights focuses on the protections provided by Federal law when individuals file civil rights discrimination complaints, including complaints of discrimination on the basis of disability. This Dear Colleague letter strongly reminds school districts, postsecondary institutions, and other recipients that it is illegal to retaliate against individuals filing such complaints. The letter clarifies the basic principles of retaliation law and describes OCR’s methods of enforcement.  (posted April 24, 2013)
