The EEOC Process

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces federal laws that prohibit certain types of job discrimination. Employment discrimination based on an applicant's or employee's race, color, age (40 or older), disability or membership in another protected class is illegal.

If your employer violated your legal rights, the first step in addressing the problem is to go through the EEOC charge process, which generally has four stages, and which will allow your employer to respond to the complaint. The EEOC process is essentially federal but locally based. If you need assistance understanding how to bring an EEOC charge of discrimination, our firm can provide it.
