The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is the federal government agency that is responsible for enforcing federal discrimination laws.
Filing a Charge of Discrimination
Prior to filing a discrimination complaint in federal court, an aggrieved individual first needs to file a charge of discrimination (form 5) with the EEOC and obtain a notice of right to sue from the EEOC. When completing a charge of discrimination, you will need several pieces of information, including the employer's name and address, the date(s) of discrimination, and details of the discrimination. If you need help navigating the EEOC process, please contact a lawyer at The Weiner Law Firm to discuss your situation.
