(1) the name and, where available, the address, telephone number, and e-mail address of the person seeking to file the complaint;
(2) the name, address and, where available, telephone number and e-mail address of the entity or person against whom the individual wishes to file a complaint. If applicable, the number of individuals employed by the entity or person against whom the individual wishes to file a complaint also shall be provided;
(3) the name of the employer, if applicable, as it appears on the most recent U.S. Internal Revenue Service form W-2 the person received, against whom the person wishes to file a complaint;

(6) the discriminatory conduct or treatment the person experienced and the date or dates such discriminatory conduct or treatment occurred;
(7) for retaliation complaints, the protected activity in which the person engaged and the date of the protected activity;
(8) the reason the person believes the conduct experienced was discriminatory and, if applicable, the name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and job title of any individual the employer treated more favorably;
(9) the name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and job title of each individual believed to have relevant information regarding the complaint of discrimination and a brief summary/description of the information;

A. date of hire or application for job at issue;
B. job title and rate of pay at time the discriminatory treatment or conduct occurred;
C. name and title of immediate supervisor or interviewer;
D. if employment was terminated, name of replacement and the replacement's protected basis, if any, where known;
E. if employment was terminated or prospective employer failed to hire, whether other employment was subsequently obtained and if so, the date of hire, job title, and rate of pay of replacement job;
F. If not hired for desired position:
a. how information about available position and rate of pay was obtained;
b. whether application for desired position was made orally or in writing;

e. name and rate of pay, if known, of person hired for desired job.
(d) The department shall liberally construe the facts alleged by a potential complainant when evaluating whether to accept a complaint.
(e) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the department shall only accept complaints for investigation where:
(1) The conduct alleged, if proven, would violate a law the department enforces.
(2) The statute of limitations has not run. For complaints alleging a continuing violation, the most recent act of harm alleged shall have occurred within the applicable limitations period. Where there is doubt about whether the statute of limitations has run, the complaint shall be taken by the department and the issue of timeliness investigated and analyzed during the investigation.
(3) Each named respondent is an entity or person over whom the department has jurisdiction under the laws the department enforces. Where there is doubt about whether the department has jurisdiction over a particular respondent, the complaint shall be taken by the department and the issue of jurisdiction investigated and analyzed during the investigation.
(f) At the conclusion of the intake interview, complainants with claims over which another state agency may have jurisdiction shall be advised accordingly and provided referral information, regardless of whether the department also has jurisdiction over some or all of a complainant's claims.
(g) The department shall not accept complaints where the same protected bases, discriminatory acts, and allegations are or have been included in a complaint the complainant previously filed with the department or the EEOC against the same respondent(s).
