Where can I file an employment complaint?
This is a publication adapted from the original version of “The Americans with Disabilities Act Questions and Answers,” a document originally prepared by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, October 2008 version.
However, the EEOC’s final regulations apply only to Title I of the ADA; they do not apply to Title II and III of the ADA. Other federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the U.S. Department of Labor will need to update their regulations to reflect the changes in the definition of disability required by the ADAAA amendment.
R. The labor provisions of title I apply to private employers with 15 or more employees, State and local governments, placement agencies and labor unions, agents of the employer, and administrative union labor committees.
R. The ADA prohibits discrimination in all employment practices, including job application procedures, hiring, firing, unemployment compensation, training, and other employment terms, conditions, and privileges. The law applies to hiring, advertising, tenure, layoff, discharge, leave of absence, fringe benefits, and all other employment-related activities.

The word discrimination means unfair or unequal treatment of someone because of his or her disability. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities. There are many ways an employer can discriminate against you, including:
Intentional discrimination occurs for many reasons. For example, when an employer does not want to pay the cost of your reasonable accommodations or disparages you because of your disability, your employer may deliberately treat you unfairly.
One employer who hires heavy equipment operators requires applicants to take a written test. If an applicant with dyslexia takes the test, he or she could be denied employment because of his or her difficulty reading. This would be a case of unintentional discrimination because the ability to pass a written test is not an important skill for heavy equipment operation. The practice of requiring the written test causes an unfair disadvantage to an entire group because of their disability. If a test is required, the employer must offer it in an alternative format that best suits the applicant.

However, it has also been made official that at least the insurers Ohio National Life Insurance (“Ohio”), on May 13, 2021, and Chilena Consolidada, a subsidiary of the Zurich Insurance Company Ltd. group, on June 15, 2021, have initiated the “negotiation period” or have sent a “notice of intent” to the Government of Chile, with the purpose of preparing the way to initiate an investment arbitration proceeding against our country. It is not intended in these lines to make a substantive analysis of whether the insurers’ allegations are not admissible under the provisions of Law No. 21,330 of Law No. 21,330.
It is not intended in these lines to make a substantive analysis of whether or not the allegations of the insurers in the face of the provisions of Law No. 21,330 are appropriate or not. In what follows, I will refer exclusively to what has been understood at the international level as the “waiting or cooling off period” and the “notice of intent” in the context of investment arbitration. The majority of international treaties on investment arbitration have been interpreted as the “waiting or cooling off period” and the “notice of intent”.
Most International Investment Treaties (“IITs”), establish a period within which the potential parties to an investment arbitration (i.e. a Foreign Investor and a Host State of the investment), must attempt to amicably resolve their disputes before initiating an arbitration proceeding. This is known in international law as the “cooling-off requirement”, since it is required that, prior to the commencement of the arbitration process, the parties, through a non-adversarial mechanism, attempt to resolve their disputes.
