Supporting Your Case
We need your help. It is in your best interest that you do these things. If you do not, the EOD office may close your case.
During the initial investigation, it is not only the responsibility of the Investigator to gather information. You must also collect evidence.
- We need to be able to contact you. Let the Equal Opportunities Division (EOD) know immediately of any changes in your address or phone number. If you plan to be absent from the city for more than one week, let us know. Also, let us know if your Contact Person changes or if there is any change in their address or phone number.
- Sometimes we need proof that you received a document from us. In this case, the document will be mailed to you via Certified Mail. You must accept this document when it is delivered, sign for it if necessary, or go to the Post Office and pick it up.
- Attend conferences, meetings and hearings. Be on time. If there is a problem with the scheduled time, call as soon as you get the notice. If you are late or do not attend the conference, your case may be dismissed.
- Respond to letters from the EOD office within stated time limits. If you need additional time, call the EOD office. In some cases, additional time may be granted.
- If you decide to drop your case, you must withdraw it in writing. Call the EOD office at (608) 266-4910 to obtain the necessary form.
