Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification
Under the DCOHR process, the agency is supposed to provide you with a determination and decision, also, under the rules, you can file a reconsideration of the decision can be submitted to OHR within 15 days of the Determination.
If they did not provide you any details,
you need to file for reconsideration,
and they will have to provide you with all the information, and file,
you can also file an EEOC complaint, asking them to review the DCOHR process and see if they violated your rights
The DCOHR, has to provide you findings which are based upon their investigation
You would be able to do so, also, if you sue the employer for discrimination you can force the Court to provide you with the file as well.
yes, you can ask
you may want to file an EEOC complaint as well,
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)Washington Field Office1400 L Street, N.W. Suite 200Washington, D.C. 20005Phone:(NNN) NNN-NNNNbr/>TTY:(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>
That is a problem,
the DCOHR should investigate, I would also consider retaining a local civil rights attorney
to bring a discrimination suit as well
you can only bring action against an employer,
the DCOHR should investigate the matter, I would also file an EEOC complaint as wll
you may have to bring a lawsuit against them after the investigation.
are they claiming you were a 1099 contractor?
were you paid a w2?
a regular pay stub with deductions or were you paid cash or check with no deductions
the contracting company who paid you is your employer,
so they would be liable for discrimination,
no because they were not the employer,
the contracting agency may be liable if they allowed discrimination,
then it may be better to file a complaint against the employer
If you were paid by the contractor they are your employer
you should file against the employer if you have not already
that is all you can do at this point
