​​Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission Launches New Online Option for Filing Employing Discrimination

Harrisburg, PA - The Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC) has launched a new option for individuals to use when they seek to file an employment discrimination complaint. This new initiative enables individuals to have access to an online employment discrimination questionnaire, which will provide increased convenience and accuracy. The PHRC worked closely with the Office of Administration’s Office of Information Technology to design this new option for the agency.

“With more people having access to computers, this step in doing business online is both convenient for the public and increases efficiencies at PHRC,” said Executive Director JoAnn Edwards. “We hope to have other types of discrimination questionnaires online in the near future.”
In order to protect information, individuals interested in filing a complaint online must first register with Keystone ID, the Commonwealth’s online registration process. When a person completes the questionnaire, the information will be forwarded directly into the PHRC data tracking system and will be assigned a case number for review and action at the regional level.
The PHRC is the state agency that is charged with upholding Pennsylvania’s anti-discrimination laws and promoting equal opportunity for all Commonwealth residents. The PHRC has regional offices in Harrisburg, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
