What are the EEOC and the DCR?

The EEOC is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The DCR is the Division on Civil Rights. Both are government agencies designed to address discrimination in the workplace and in public accommodations. The EEOC is a Federally run civil rights agency. The DCR is funded and sponsored by the State of New Jersey. The EEOC is equipped to handle discrimination complaints involving Federal law. If you are a Federal employee, for instance, you are required to pursue a discrimination complaint with the EEOC, not the DCR. The DCR handles and processes violations of the State civil rights laws, such as the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination.
