Filing a complaint

Any person who believes, in the course of business with a WisDOT program or service, that he or she or any specific class of persons or business entity has been subject to discrimination or retaliation prohibited by any of the federal or state Civil Rights statutes or common law principles, based upon race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, low-income or limited English proficiency (LEP) may file a complaint.

A complaint must be filed no later than 180 days after:

  • The date of the alleged act of discrimination.
  • The date when the person(s) became aware of the alleged discrimination.
  • Where there has been a continuing violation, the latest instance of prohibited conduct.

Complaints shall be in writing, and signed by the person(s) or representative, and include the complainant's name, address and telephone number. Allegations of discrimination received by phone, email or fax will also be acknowledged and processed.

If you believe that during the course of business with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, that you were subjected to discrimination based upon race, color, national origin, disability, age, sex, limited English proficiency or low-income status, you may file a complaint using the information below.

If you wish to file a complaint against the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) that is not based upon discrimination, please contact Jill Reeves at jill.reeve@dot.wi.gov or (608) 266-0428.
