CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

Employees in Charlottesville who feel they are victims of discrimination can report their complaints to state investigators without leaving the city.

The newly created Office of Human Rights is bringing the director of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) from Richmond to Charlottesville for monthly sessions.

Darrell Graham will meet with people who feel discriminated against if they work with companies that have more than 15 employees.

“They would have called the Richmond office. They might have had to make a trip down there. You have to fill out forms and so on. So having Mr. Graham here once a month will allow people to stay here in Charlottesville and have the EEOC come to them,” said Zan Tewksbury, Human Rights Office manager.

Thursday’s first round of meetings is booked solid. The director will return December 12.
