Filing an Administrative Charge
If you have never filed an administrative charge, there are several components involved that you will need to be familiar with for a successful outcome. This includes meeting the deadline for filing the administrative charge against your employer. Let a disability lawyer Memphis TN relies upon from Darrell Castle and Associates, PLLP and Associates, PLLP to guide you through this legal maze. Here are some general guidelines about the process.
- Under Federal law, before you can bring a discrimination lawsuit, you will have to file an administrative charge with the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Tennessee Human Rights Commission. If you file a lawsuit without first having filed a charge, your lawsuit will be thrown out.
- The EEOC or agency will notify your employer when it has received your administrative charge. The EEOC may dismiss your charge, choose to investigate, request that you try to settle or mediate the dispute with your employer, or they may act themselves, though that is rare. Otherwise, they will process your claim and issue you a right to sue letter. This is what you need to be able to file a lawsuit.
- As with filing an administrative charge, there is a deadline for filing a lawsuit after receiving your right to sue letter. An experienced disability lawyer Memphis TN employees rely on can help you with these filings and can assess the strength of your claim.
