In New Jersey, one can file a claim with the Division of Civil Rights (DCR). Federal law allows a victim to file a Charge of Discrimination with the EEOC.

If the EEOC is not convinced of the evidence, they may issue you a Notice-of-Right-to-Sue and allow you to proceed with your federal lawsuit without their assistance.
