EEOC Notice of Right to Sue
Your employer has discriminated against you based on your race, religion, sex, national origin, or pregnancy in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
Your employer has discriminated against you based on your age or your disability.
Or your employer has retaliated against you for complaining about discrimination or being a witness to discrimination.
You have filed your "Charge" with the EEOC. The EEOC has offered to mediate or conciliate your case or the EEOC has issued a "Right to Sue" notice to you. Now what do you do? While you do not have to have a lawyer to file a Charge, go to EEOC mediation or conciliation, you must understand that the EEOC does NOT represent you. They do not seek the highest damages available to you. They simply seek to stop the discriminatory or retaliatory practice. They do not to seek to recover all of your lost wages, punitive damages, or emotional distress damages.
If you want the tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands potentially owed to you for illegal discrimination or retaliation you need a lawyer to represent you and not rely on the EEOC to act in your best interest. The lawyers at Martin & Martin aggressively handle EEOC claims every day fighting for the highest possible recovery for our clients.
