Prior to filing a lawsuit against your employer, the law requires that you  file an EEOC Charge of Discrimination. Each year thousands of discrimination claims are filed with the EEOC. The majority of these claims get dismissed due to the discriminatory conduct not being properly documented in the charge and/or due to mis-management of claims during the administrative process.  If you believe that you have been the victim of discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability, our firm can assist with your discrimination claim. We can assure that your claim is properly documented and pursued.
