File a Complaint

If you've experienced discrimination and would like to file a complaint, please complete and send us one of questionnaires down below.

Vermont Human Rights Commission (VHRC)
14-16 Baldwin Street
Montpelier, VT  05633-6301
e-mail: human.rights@vermont.gov
phone: 802-828-2480 or 800-416-2010 (in-state only)

The VHRC has jurisdiction over complaints in housing, public accommodations, and state government employment. To confirm whether you fall into one or more of the categories protected under anti-discrimination law, please review our Jurisdiction webpage. 

If your complaint does not relate to discrimination in one of those three areas, our staff may be able to refer you to the appropriate organization or agency. For complaints related to private employment (any employer that isn't the state or federal government), please contact the Civil Rights Unit in the Vermont Attorney General's office. 

In order to complete the questionnaires below, we recommend either 1) saving the PDF form to your computer before opening it back up and typing in the text or 2) printing off the form and filling it in by hand. Please contact our office if you have any technical issues with the forms.
