Title VI
Title VI Discrimination Complaints


The Title VI discriminations complaint procedures are intended to provide aggrieved persons an avenue to raise complaints of discrimination regarding the Oregon Department of Transportation's (ODOT) programs, activities and services as required by statute.
Any person who feels that he or she has been subjected to discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, or because they are low income, has the right to file a complaint with the Department’s Office of Civil Rights. Title VI Complaints must be filed within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory event or practice. Complaints must be filed in person or in writing. They should be directed to: 

Office of Civil Rights
Oregon Department of Transportation
Attn. Title VI Officer
955 Center St. NE, Suite 471
Salem, Oregon 97301
These procedures do not deny or limit the right of a complainant to file a formal complaint with an outside enforcement agency (BOLI, EEOC, U.S. Dept. of Transportation, FHWA, FTA, or U. S. Dept. of Justice) or to seek private counsel for complaints alleging discrimination. Every effort will be made to obtain early resolution of complaints at the lowest possible level.
