File A Complaint of Discrimination:


File a complaint

The Tennessee Human Rights Commission is an independent state agency which investigates allegations of discrimination in housing, employment, Title VI and places of public accommodations. If you feel that you have been discriminated against because of your race, color, gender, disability, national origin, religion, creed, familial status or age (40 and over) then you may file a complaint of discrimination. If the complaint is jurisdictional, then THRC will investigate the matter.

  • Complaints of discrimination must be filed with the Commission within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory act.

  • Complaints of discrimination are not valid until the original signature page is received by mail or in person by the Commission.
