Office of the Ombudsman

Confidential - Neutral - Independent - Informal

7. I’m thinking about filing an EEO complaint. May I still contact an ombudsman?

Yes, but speaking with us does not provide NIH with notice of your intent to file a complaint. You may come directly to an ombudsman with work or lab-related concerns, including concerns you believe may be a basis for a complaint of discrimination or harassment (an EEO complaint).
