State/Country relating to question: Illinois
I HAVE SPOKE TO MY TEMP AGENCY AND SUPERVISOR
Hello,Thank you for the information and your question. If you believe that a company is refusing to hire you because of your race or national origin, then you are entitled to file a discrimination complaint with the Illinois Department of Human Rights and/or the EEOC. That really is your only option if you cannot work this out with the company you want to work for. You can find out more about filing your complaint by going to: http://www2.illinois.gov/dhr/Pages/default.aspx and www.eeoc.govPlease let me know if you have any follow up questions for me.
You may reply back to me using the Continue the Conversation or Reply to Expert link if you have additional questions; and if you do, I ask that you please keep in mind that I do not know what you may already know or with what you need help, unless you tell me. Please recognize that the rating system only gives me credit for working with you when you click one of the 3 stars/faces on the right. Also, kindly rate me based solely on my assistance to you in understanding the law, and not based on whether my answer is what you were hoping to hear. I have no control over the how the law impacts your particular situation, and I trust that you can understand how it would be unfair for me to be punished by a (negative rating) ----the first 2 stars/faces----for having been honest with you about the law. Please reply to me and let me know if you are having difficulty with the rating system or even seeing it. Thank you.

SHOULD I GET A LAWYER FOR THESE PROCESS AND CAN YOU PLEASE EMAIL ME ALL OF YOUR ANSWERS TO
You can certainly contact one and that might be a good idea. However, you do not need an attorney to file these complaints. Again, though it might be a good idea to speak to an Employment Law attorney though about your case since you might ultimately have to file suit. If you need a copy of this information you can copy it or email it to yourself, by going to the "share" icon on the answer page that has the ORANGE plus sign. There you will see some choices, including email. I however cannot email this to you because I don't work for the company. If you need further help doing this, then let me know and I will let customer service know you need help.
thank u for your time and help
You're very welcome and best of luck to you.
