Discrimination Complaint

  1. The City of Holland Protection Against Discrimination Ordinance (Chapter 25) was adopted August 19, 2020 and protects from discrimination based on age, race, national origin, color, disability, education, familial status, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, height, marital status, religion, source of income, or weight. These protections apply to employment, housing, public accommodation, and public service. The City also complies with Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VI provides that no person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color, national origin (including limited English proficiency) or sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. Other related statutes have broadened Title VI to include age, low income and disability as protected classes. Title VII prohibits workplace discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, and sex. If you are the victim of an act of discrimination, a hate crime, or bias incident under Title VI, Title VII, or the City of Holland's Protection Against Discrimination Ordinance (Chapter 25), or are witness to such an incident, please submit a complaint in-person, whenever possible. Call the Human Relations Department at 616-355-1322 to schedule an appointment to discuss and file your complaint.
