FEPA
USA
A state or local equivalent of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). FEPAs enforce most of the state or local laws prohibiting employment discrimination, harassment and retaliation within their jurisdictions. Most FEPAs coordinate the adjudication of charges with the EEOC through work sharing agreements. Under work sharing agreements, generally:
• If the charge is filed with the EEOC, a copy is provided to the relevant FEPA, but the charge is adjudicated by the EEOC.
• If the charge is filed with the relevant FEPA, a copy is provided to the EEOC, but the charge is adjudicated by the FEPA.
Examples of FEPAs include the
• New York State Division of Human Rights (NYSDHR) (see NYSDHR website ).
