Similar to the EEOC, the Division of Human Rights investigates violations of the LAD and offer victims of harassment and discrimination a way to better their situation through administrative and civil relief. If someone files a complaint with the Division of Human Rights, the governing body will investigate and, if they find evidence of a valid case, will try to settle the matter.
