How does OCR respond to my concern for privacy and confidentiality?
Answer:Privacy Act Notice and confidentiality rules are in place. In Office for Civil Rights (OCR) investigations, the name of the complainant usually is kept confidential unless it's disclosure is necessary to the case. If OCR determines that release of your identity is required for the processing of the case, you will be asked to sign a release. If you choose not to provide a release, the investigation may be impeded or stopped.
