Checking the Status of Your Charge

Who can use the Online Charge Status System?

EEOC's Online Charge Status System allows both individuals who have filed a charge of discrimination (charging parties) with EEOC and respondents, and their respective representatives, to track the progress of the charge. These are the only users of the system authorized by EEOC.

What Information Does the Online System provide?

The system provides up-to-date status on an individual charge as well as an overview of the steps that charges follow from intake to resolution. The system also provides contact information for EEOC staff assigned to the charge at each stage along the way.

What Charges Are Available in the Online System for a Status Check?

The Online Charge Status System is available for charges filed on or after September 2, 2015. It is not available for charges filed prior to this date or for charges filed with state and local Fair Employment Practices Agencies. 

How Do I Use the Online System to Check the Status of a Charge?

The system can be accessed by selecting the "My Charge Status" button below. Please see our tip sheet for further information on how to use the system, and our flow chart for an overview of what happens to your charge after it is filed.

How Do I Find Out the Status of a Charge if I Don't Have Internet Access?

EEOC will offer assistance through its toll-free number at 1-800-669-4000 (TTY: 1-800-669-6820 or ASL Video Phone 1-844-234-5122) for those who do not have Internet access to retrieve the information provided in the Online Charge Status System or who need language assistance in one of the 150 languages for which we offer translations services.
