Please answer the following questions as thoroughly and completely as possible.


I swear or affirm that I have read the above allegation and that it is accurate to the best of my knowledge, information, or belief.

I understand that I should keep all information learned during the complaint investigation process should be kept confidential by Complainants and Reporting Individuals. The Office of Equity and Access (OEA) keeps all information gathered relative to allegations of discrimination in confidence to the extent practicable or allowable by law. However, OEA may provide relevant information to the appropriate University staff as necessary.

I understand that it is a violation of State and Federal law and Stony Brook University policy for anyone to retaliate against any individual involved in an investigation of discrimination. I understand that if I am subjected to any adverse action that I feel may be retaliatory, it should be reported immediately to OEA.

I understand that the filing of an internal complaint with Stony Brook University is not a waiver of my right to file a formal complaint of unlawful discrimination with the New York State Division of Human Rights, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Federal courts, or the State courts.

I understand that the filing of an internal complaint does not stop the statute of limitations for filing external complaints with EEOC, the NYS Division of Human Rights, litigation, or any other agency hearing such complaints. I am aware that should I choose to file a verified complaint with an outside agency, such a complaint must be filed with EEOC within 180 days of the alleged incident and with the State Division of Human Rights within 365 days of the alleged incident.

I understand policy and the information contained in it does not constitute legal advice. If you require legal advice, consult an attorney. By submitting this form, I am certifying the above statements to be true and factual to the best of my knowledge.
