Discriminination

Including Harassment and Retaliation

America's employment discrimination prevent discrimination based on race, sex, religion, national origin, physical disability, and age by employers. Discriminatory practices include bias in hiring, promotion, job assignment, termination, compensation, retaliation, and various types of harassment.

EEOC

What it Does

Congress has given some of the enforcement authority to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC investigates claims under the Equal Pay Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title I and V of the Americans With Disabilities Act, Sections 501 and 505 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Civil Rights Act of 1991.

If you want to file a lawsuit for discrimination or other related employment claims, you must first "exhaust" your administrative remedies. This means you must first file an administrative complaint with the EEOC. After you have given the EEOC sufficient time to investigate the complaint, you can request a Right-to-Sue letter from  the EEOC.

Lawsuits

First the EEOC, then a lawsuit

Under the law, you generally must first go to the EEOC before you file a lawsuit. You generally have to go to the EEOC within 180 days of the discrimination. Once this is done, and you have given the EEOC sufficient time to investigate and/or to enforce the law, you may request a Right-to-Sue letter.

Upon getting your Right-to-Sue letter, just as the name says, you have the right to go ahead and file your discrimination lawsuit. But be fast - the law generally only gives you 90 days after getting the Right-to-Sue letter to file your lawsuit.
