Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for the information and your question. Your next step is to simply request a "right to sue letter" from the EEOC and find and attorney to assist you in filing suit. The EEOC does not really take on very many cases themselves. They often only attempt to mediate, investigate and reach their own conclusion. A court of law is the final decisionmaker and that is where you must go if you want your case decided once and for all.
Please let me know if you need any clarification.
Thank you for your reply and for clarifying the facts of your situation. We are not allowed to provide specific references to other attorneys, so I can provide you with a name. You have a few options in trying to find one that is willing to take your case and assist you with trying to resolve this in your favor. One is to contact the Missouri Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service. They will get you connected to an employment law attorney in your area that practices employment discrimination law. You will have a reduced fee consultation and based on that, you and the attorney will decide if you have a case they feel they can take and you should move forward with. You can find information on that service at: http://www.mobar.org/lrs/clients.htm
You could also contact your County Bar Association and see if they have a referral service. I would generally start with the State Bar first though. You know, of course, you have a short window to file suit, so time is of the essence. Your attorney doesn't have to use or depend on anythin that the EEOC investigator did and you can, if you choose, write a complaint to the Agency head about the investigator/case handler you were assigned.
I am out of my office for the rest of the morning, but will respond to any follow up you have when I return. Thank you
Thank you again for your reply. I don't understand your last post, but unfortunately unless this is a case that the ACLU would take, you would have to hire an attorney and file suit within the 90 days or you will lose your right to redress for this behavior. These cases are very time consuming and labor extensive for an attorney so, although they would be the best advocate for your case, they come at a more than marginal expense.
If you think this is a case that the local press (written or TV) would be interested in, they may be able to push the issue with your employer.
If you are referring to this Site, the Site TOS makes it very clear that we cannot provide assistance in the manner that you are seeking. This is an information only Site, not a legal assistance Site, as stated in the disclosures all over the Site. That is why I provided you with a discussion of the law related to your question and a contact for a referral to someone who can assist you
I'm not sure who you think you are talking to but it appears that you are confusing this Site and its services with something else. In any event, I will opt out of your question and perhaps someone else can communicate more effectively with you.
New expert here. Are you looking to retain a local attorney that could represent you on a contingency basis?
