Federal Employment Discrimination
DC Federal Employment Discrimination Lawyer Serving Clients Nation-Wide
Federal discrimination laws, established by Congress, are enforced by federal regulations. These laws make it unlawful for employers to discriminate against employees or job applicants based on race, religion, disability, age, national origin, or gender. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the agency which enforces these laws. If you have been subjected to a discriminatory act as a federal employee or job applicant, you must contact the EEOC within 45 days or you may lose your right to pursue action against the implicated person or agency. If you need legal assistance pursuing any federal employment discrimination matter, you can benefit from consulting with a DC federal employment discrimination attorney at the Solomon Law Firm, PLLC. The firm has effectively represented hundreds of federal employees in every imaginable type of employment issue in the field of federal employment law throughout the country.
The EEOC Complaint Process
Once an EEOC counselor is contacted, the EEOC complaint process is initiated. An EEOC investigator will be assigned who will investigate your complaint for evidence so that the agency can make a determination in the matter. Investigations, which may include interviews, sworn statements, and affidavits, may take up to 180 days or longer. Once the investigation is complete, the final report will be presented to the agency and to you as the complaining party.
If your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction by the EEOC, you may request a hearing before an EEOC administrative law judge or request that a decision be made from your federal agency after reviewing your formal complaint. Because of the complex procedures involved as well as time constraints, it is vital that you seek legal counsel from a Washington DC federal employment lawyer at the firm as early in the complaint process as possible. There are many techniques and strategies that can be used by the firm to advance your litigation position and help you gain a competitive edge in your case against the federal government.
