The Missouri Commission on Human Rights
investigates complaints of discrimination in housing, employment, and places of public
accommodations because of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, disability,
age (in employment only), and family status (in housing only). Complaints under the Missouri Human Rights
Act must be filed with the MCHR within 180 days of the alleged discrimination. If you believe that you have been illegally
denied access or service because you use a service animal, you may file a complaint with
the U.S. Department of Justice. You also have the right to file a private
lawsuit in Federal court charging the entity with discrimination under the ADA. To file a complaint with the Missouri Commission
on Human Rights, please contact the MCHR at 573-751-3325 or toll-free at 877-781-4236 For more information contact the Governor’s
Council on Disability.
