(a) Except for mixed case complaints, any dismissal of a complaint or a portion of a complaint or any final decision may be appealed to the Commission within 30 days of the complainant's receipt of the dismissal or final decision. Any grievance decision may be appealed within 30 days of receipt of a decision referred to in 1614.401 (c). In the case of class complaints, any final decision received by an agent, petitioner or an individual claimant may be appealed to the Commission within 30 days of its receipt. Where a complainant has notified the EEO Director of alleged noncompliance with a settlement agreement in accordance with 1614.504, the complainant may file an appeal 35 days after service of the allegations of noncompliance, but must file an appeal within 30 days of receipt of an agency's determination. (b) If the complainant is represented by an attorney of record, then the 30-day time period provided in paragraph (a) of this section within which to appeal shall be calculated from the receipt of the required document by the attorney. In all other instances, the time within which to appeal shall be calculated from the receipt of the required document by the complainant.
