What is the Process?

Upon receipt of a discrimination complaint, the City's Ombudsman/Title VI-ADA Co-Coordinator shall evaluate and investigate the complaint. The City's Ombudsman may seek assistance of the City Attorney in investigating and responding to the complaint. The Ombudsman shall complete the investigation no later than 45 calendar days after the date the complaint is received. If more time is required, the Ombudsman shall notify the Complainant of the estimated time frame for completing the investigation. Upon completion of the investigation, the Ombudsman shall respond to the complaint in writing and follow up verbally if the individual is unable to read the written report. The response will explain the position of the City, and, where appropriate, offer options for substantive resolution of the complaint.

If the Complainant disagrees with the Ombudsman's response, the Complainant may appeal the decision within fifteen (15) calendar days after receipt of the response to the Mayor or his designee. Within fifteen (15) calendar days after receipt of the appeal, the Mayor or his designee will respond in writing with a final resolution of the complaint.

Complaints alleging discrimination against applicants or employees on the basis of disability are addressed by the Director of Equity and Diversity, Kimberley Taylor-Riley, 555 South 10th Street #304, Lincoln, NE 68508, 402.441.8691, ktaylor-riley@lincoln.ne.gov.

All written complaints received by the Ombudsman or Director of Equity and Diversity, appeals to the Mayor, and responses from the City are retained for at least three years.

Complainants are also free to file complaints directly with the US Department of Justice or the Nebraska Equal Opportunity Commission
