The procedure may be used by any full or part-time employee of Old Dominion University who believes that he or she has a discrimination complaint.

A discrimination complaint is a written statement by an individual that he or she has suffered direct injury as a result of an action by a University official or employee which is intended to or has the effect of discriminating against the individual on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, gender, age, veteran status, disability, political affiliation, sexual orientation or genetic information.
