Employment Discrimination

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission enforces Federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination. These laws protect you against employment discrimination when it involves:

If you believe that you have been discriminated against at work, you can file a "Charge of Discrimination." All of the laws enforced by EEOC, except for the Equal Pay Act, require you to file a Charge of Discrimination with the EEOC before you can file an employment discrimination lawsuit against your employer in Federal court.

Note: Federal employees and job applicants have similar protections, but a different complaint process.

Not all employers are covered by the laws the EEOC enforce, and not all employees are protected. This can vary depending on the type of employer, the number of employees it has, and the type of discrimination alleged. Also, there are strict time limits for filing a charge that you should be aware of. Because of this, we strongly urge you to contact us to help determine your rights and what action you need to take.

I've been discriminated against by my employer. I want to hire a lawyer, but I don't have a job. How can I possibly pay you?

We take the majority of our employment discrimination cases on a contingency fee basis; meaning that you don't pay us anything for our services unless you receive a favorable result in your case.
