Time To File Civil Rights Complaint Lengthened

Starting July 1, 2008 a person who wants to file a civil rights complaint under Iowa law will have 300 Days. The previous filing deadline was 180 days. This change conforms to the federal deferral time-line of 300 days. There is an exception for persons covered by Section 614.8 of the Iowa Code, the mentally ill and minors. This change will result in a change the Iowa poster which may, but is not required to, be hung in the workplace. The revised recommended poster can be accessed on the Iowa Civil Rights Commission website.

Employers are required to hang the federal EEOC poster.
