California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Yes i did (EEOC) and then the agency rescinded my suspension (a year and half later) and i still had my case of discrimination against the agency, then we ask/ went to medeation to settle for corrections to the back pay and my expenses and i would of dropped the discimination case but with no result(agency did not try to solve issues and they were unprepaired and not willing to even do a settlement). Now its been two years.
So we just went back into EEOC (July-August 2012), i was to have a disposistion and this is when i decided to rescinde the discrinination case. So the disposistion was conceled and my legal consultants are working on my list of expenses right now, plus we are trying to get thier fees also paid for. But i am being told becuse they were not lawyers i may not get that cost back. I stated i went through lawyer referal and talk with 6 lawyers who once herd that i was working for the government and my case was against the government they said no thank you, XXXXX XXXXX tie up resorces or time to fight againts the government. So with that being said i was told about these legal consultants and hired them since no lawyer would help me. Thats my claim for hiring them instead of a lawyer. I had no choice!. EEOC Judges Order now has it that i did conceled my discrimination case and we are working on my expense list.which has to be in by August 7, 2012. This is were i stand as today.
Letter to sue would of been when or if i lost my first part of the EEOC which i think was and half year ago, who would i check to see what dates. I guess call EEOC. Suffer from emotional stree was from March 2010 to when i decided to rescinde my discrimination claim. During the first six months the agency tried to fire me but suspended me instead and i keep my discrimination claim going till the agency and we found my due process was denied.
Yes my stress was in the last two years uo to this date. This thing started March 2010 and we are still fighting my case.
I stand to be corrected, its been so stressful.
I was denied EEOC and we went to Merit System Protection Board and thats where we are now.
Does this make a difference?
I am also looking for a lawyer who would take the case with out a $7500.00 retanner. I got one such call, i do not have or can get that type of money, not knowing for sure how it would come out, if i would win or not?
