The Ohio Civil Rights Commission takes our mission to investigate charges of discrimination and harassment very seriously. We also take seriously our responsibility as a state agency to protect the safety and security of all Ohioans.

In order to prevent and contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Ohio Civil Rights Commission is suspending in-person charge filing at all of our regional offices. We encourage all Ohioans who wish to file a charge to file online or call their regional office.

We appreciate your patience during this difficult time. Please watch this space for any updates to this policy.
Please direct any questions to pace@civ.ohio.gov.

30 East Broad Street, Fifth Floor, Columbus OH, 43215 | 614-466-2785 | 1-888-278-7101
