Benefits of Having an EEOC Attorney in the Complaint Process

If you have reason to file a complaint against your employer with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a Cruz Law EEOC attorney in Florida can help you prepare your complaint and ensure that your rights are protected throughout the process.

It is likely that your employer will be represented by an attorney. The employer may deny your complaint and try to put the blame on you, potentially damaging your reputation and employability. Meanwhile, the EEOC cannot take sides and will not assist or advise you. But an experienced employment discrimination attorney with Cruz Law Firm can guide you through the complaint process.

To file an EEOC complaint is to initiate a legal claim based on employment discrimination laws that are complex and nuanced. While your case may be settled, in many cases, the EEOC concludes its investigation by issuing a Notice of Right to Sue letter. That gives you 90 days to file a lawsuit in federal court. You will need a lawyer to file a federal lawsuit, but few will step into a case with so little time to investigate, prepare and file a claim in federal court.

In cases of age discrimination or Equal Pay Act violations, you do not have to wait for a Notice of Right to Sue letter to file a lawsuit. You also have the right to request a Notice of Right to Sue from the EEOC if the agency has not issued a ruling within 180 days of the date you filed your complaint. As your attorneys, Cruz Law Firm can help you save time and expenses by filing a lawsuit without undue delay if it is appropriate to do so.

You will fare better if you engage a lawyer from the start who can investigate and help you file a strong complaint with the EEOC. This will ensure you have solid and persuasive evidence backing you during mediation and in a strong federal lawsuit if necessary.
