What if another issue arises during the investigation?

What if another issue arises during the investigation?

If another issue of discrimination arises during the course of the investigation, a Complainant may request to amend the complaint at any time prior to the conclusion of the investigation. The Complainant must make this request in writing to the PDO that outlines the new issue and explains why the Complainant believes this new issue to be discriminatory. This request must be signed and dated by the Complainant and/or their attorney representative. It is up to PDO to accept or dismiss the amendment as it must be "like or related" to the current claims accepted for investigation.
