Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
The Palm Beach County Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) is continuing to enforce equal employment, housing and places of public accommodation laws while ensuring that all of our activities are consistent with public health guidelines.
The OEO closed its physical office to the public but our work continues. Preserving access to file a complaint of discrimination in employment, housing and places of public accommodation is important as the laws that the OEO enforces have deadlines within which individuals must file a discrimination complaint.
If you would like to begin the process of filing a charge or complaint of discrimination, you are encouraged to visit the OEO’s website (www.pbcgov.com/equalopportunity) to complete the applicable questionnaire. Additionally, you may also contact the OEO at (561) 355-4884 or (561) 355-1517 (TTY/TDD) to begin the process of filing a charge; or complaint of discrimination; or if you have a disability; or you otherwise have difficulty with accessing the website.
Given these exigent circumstances, we request that you communicate with our office via email, facsimile, or telephone. You may email correspondence to Kenette Penny-Baker at email@example.com or via facsimile to (561) 656-7026 and may contact our office at (561) 355-4884 or (561) 355-1517 (TTY/TDD). While your procedures may require that you mail documents to our agency, we would appreciate if you email or fax documents to our office and we will confirm receipt of the correspondence.
If you have any questions or concerns about this request, please contact Pamela Guerrier, Director at (561) 355-4884 or via email at Pguerrie@pbcgov.org
We greatly appreciate your flexibility during this time.
