What is the deadline to file an age discrimination case?
For an age discrimination case, an employee needs to file a charge of discrimination within 180 calendar days from the day the discrimination took place. The 180 calendar day filing deadline is extended to 300 calendar days if a state or local agency enforces a law that prohibits employment discrimination on the same basis.
NOTE: For age discrimination, the filing deadline is only extended to 300 days if there is a state law prohibiting age discrimination in employment and a state agency or authority enforcing that law. The deadline is not extended if only a local law prohibits age discrimination.
NOTE II: federal employees and applicants have a different complaint process, and generally must contact an agency EEO Counselor within 45 days of the discriminatory act.
