§ 37.73 What information must a complaint contain?

Each complaint must be filed in writing, and must contain the following information:

(b) The identity of the respondent (the individual or entity that the complainant alleges is responsible for the discrimination);

(i) CRC or the recipient, as applicable, has jurisdiction over the complaint;

(ii) The complaint was filed in time; and

(iii) The complaint has apparent merit; in other words, whether the complainant's allegations, if true, would violate any of the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity provisions of WIA or this part; and

(d) The complainant's signature or the signature of the complainant's authorized representative.
