Employees and former employees may file charges with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regarding workplace discrimination and/or retaliation. If the parties decline to mediate their dispute, the EEOC will investigate the matter to determine whether a violation of employment law occurred. If the EEOC is unable to determine that a violation occurred, it will send the individual a dismissal and notice of rights letter (often called a “notice of right to sue” letter). This letter serves as notice that the EEOC is closing its file on the matter and that the individual has permission to sue on the claims alleged in the charge.
An individual has only ninety days to file a lawsuit following receipt of a notice of right to sue letter. Therefore, an individual who wishes to move forward with a lawsuit must act quickly to hire employment law counsel and file the necessary pleadings with the proper court.
To speak to a Dallas, Texas employment lawyer about employment discrimination or retaliation or about a charge pending before the EEOC, contact the Dallas employment lawyers at Clouse Dunn Khoshbin LLP at [email protected].
