For a quick view of what can be found on our Web site, take a look at the site map. It provides a hierarchical list of the main topics that appear under each of the buttons in the top navigation bar and left-hand menus.
Simply type one or more keywords into the "box" on the search page, and then hit the "Search" button. Our server will then look for any "matches" with your query within the CHRT database and show you a list of results. Your search can be further refined or narrowed by selecting specific dates or grounds of discrimination.
By default, this search engine looks for the exact phrase you typed in. Typing multiple words will only find results that match all of the words in that exact sequence, except in some cases common words like a, and, the, etc.
Use AND or OR between multiple words, unless you are looking for an exact phrase. In a case or decision search, for example, you can enter the name of a complainant or respondent, the operator AND and a subsequent keyword, (e.g., Smith AND surveillance).Helpful Hints:
