Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you,
I am sorry that you are being discriminated against by your employer. You should file a formal Complaint called a "Charge" with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") and you do not have to leave your job to file this Complaint. In fact, once you file your formal Complaint with the EEOC, your employer cannot fire you or take any retaliatory action against you because the EEOC will make your employer pay fines and penalties.
You should take copies of all the evidence you have and go to the nearest EEOC Office to you. You did not state where in Texas you are located, so I am giving you the address of all the EEOC District Offices in Texas,
Dallas District Office
