File a Complaint

OSC requires that you use OSC Form-14 in order to submit a complaint alleging a prohibited personnel practice or other prohibited activity within OSC's jurisdiction. OSC encourages, but does not require, you to use this form to submit a complaint alleging a Hatch Act violation or to submit a disclosure of information alleging agency wrongdoing.  To file a USERRA complaint about discrimination or reemployment as a member  of the uniformed services, please visit the Department of Labor to complete a USERRA complaint form.
