How Do I Take My Employer To Court?
The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) has made it illegal to discriminate against you. However, it also introduces something different from other workplace discrimination lawsuits.
The difference is this: you need to get a “right to sue” letter from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The process will look like this:
- You’re discriminated against for a disability
- You get evidence of this and file a charge of discrimination with the EEOC.
- The EEOC will review this and give you a “right to sue” letter
- You then have 90 days to file a lawsuit.
If this seems confusing, read on – there is a solution.
There Are Many Benefits Of Working With an Attorney Early On.
Discrimination cases are tricky to handle by yourself when you’re dealing with time limits, governmental organizations, and more. You should start working with an attorney as soon as you’re discriminated against because:
- They can assist you in your filing (it takes the average person a lot longer)
- They can help you negotiate with your employer (meaning you don’t have to file a letter at all)
- They can file suit right when you get your “right to sue” letter
- You don’t have to handle any complicated paperwork or deal with outdated government websites
- They will be able to properly assess what you’re owed, plus additional damages
There Are A Lot of Time Limits In Discrimination Cases – Act Quickly
If you want to file with the EEOC, you have 300 days to do so. If you go with the DFEH, you have 3 years. But the sooner you act, the better it will be for you.
A lot can happen in a month or a year. The person that discriminated against you could get fired, or they move out of state. Maybe something else comes up in your family. While you have the time, you need to start acting. You might think you have a lot of time, but it goes by fast.
