Virtually all businesses in Chicago are subject to laws that prohibit discrimination. The Chicago Commission on Human Relations investigates and enforces the City’s anti-discrimination ordinances. Accepting a complaint does not mean the Commission has decided that a violation occurred, but business or individuals who have complaints filed against them must respond in writing. The Commission offers resources both for those filing complaints and for businesses and individuals responding to complaints.

The Commission accepts filing of complaints and other documents by e-mail. For more information, click the following link.
