Retaliation
 

Employees can seek redress for retaliation, harassment, and a hostile work environment by filing a suit against their employer, but must first file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) which has strict time limits for filing a claim. For example, for allegations involving almost all types of employment discrimination, the charging party (i.e. an employee alleging discrimination) must file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) before filing any private lawsuit, and must do so within 180 or 300 days of the alleged offense (see below) Only after receiving permission from the EEOC may individuals file a lawsuit. This permission typically comes in the form of a "right to sue" letter issued by the EEOC, usually only after the EEOC has found sufficient evidence that a civil rights violation has occurred.

Justin London Law provides Retaliation Lawyers, EEOC Lawyers, Harassment Lawyers for workplace discrimination, towards eliminating or minimizing discrimination at work or other forms of employment discrimination, for harassment of all levels can hopefully be stopped.

 

Individuals have federal statutory rights

 Employees are protected from discrimination and other workplace civil right violations (retaliation, harassment, and hostile work environment) by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. §2000e) which is  designed to ensure equal employment opportunities without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Title VII protects against segregation, retaliation, hostility, and opposition to discrimination in the workplace thus covering hiring, firing, promotions, and all workplace conduct. 

Filing Requirements and Limitations Period

In general, an individual must pre-file a charge with the EEOC within 180 days after the alleged unlawful practice occurred unless he or she has first filed a charge with an appropriate state agency, in which case the complainant has the earlier of 300 days from the date of the alleged violation or 30 days "after receiving notice that the State or local agency has terminated the proceedings under the State or local law."

Notwithstanding the above, the EEOC regulations allow 300 days for filing a complaint in a State where the State or local FEP agency has subject matter jurisdiction over the claims, regardless of whether the claimant has first filed a claim with the State agency.

Unless excused by the court, a action must be filed within 90 days after receipt of a right-to-sue letter.
