State and Federal agencies dealing with employment discrimination

The Federal agency dealing with employment discrimination issues is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
State Agencies:
Bureau Of Labor and Industry (BOLI)
California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH)
Web site:   http://www.dfeh.ca.gov/
Washington State Human Rights Commission (WSHRC)
Typically, there is a division of labor between the Federal agency (EEOC) and the corresponding state agency. The relevant state agency is accepting and sorting out the filed complaints and when an original complaint meets the required judicial standard, the state agency would typically file that complaint, on behalf of the original filer, with the EEOC.The result is that a state agency has jurisdiction in all 50 states and is not limited to a single jurisdiction, as would typically be the case in a regular civil court case.
