Potential Areas of Discrimination

Q. I am being discriminated against because I am Native American, can CILS assist?

A. Maybe. Each case will have to be assessed individually. Generally a claim of discrimination arises in the area of being denied housing or employment. CILS can assist you with submitting a complaint to the state Department of Fair Employment Housing who will investigate your case complaint and it is discrimination is found the Department will represent you in a case against the employer or landlord. If the Department, determines there has been no discrimination, CILS will assess your case to determine if it has legal merit to pursue.
