It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee because of that person's race, religion, age, color, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, or disability. It is also illegal for employers to discriminate against an employee because he or she filed a discrimination complaint, complained of discrimination in the workplace, or participated in a discrimination investigation or lawsuit.
When filing the initial Intake Questionnaire with the EEOC, it is important to make clear and concise claims of discrimination and provide the necessary documentation to support those discrimination claims. By doing so, the employee will stand a better chance of having their claim(s) accepted by the EEOC for investigation.
Our office provides assistance to employees with the process of filing a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in San Francisco (EEOC) for violation of these Federal laws. Once the employee's claim(s) has been accepted by the EEOC, the employee may choose to mediate the claims with the employer or decline mediation and have the EEOC commence their investigation.
