Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you tonight.
This appears to be a smokescreen to me.If the employer really thought a mistake was made here regarding termination they would just reinstate you here like today. I think if you feel that discrimination was involved you file with EEOC and see how EEOC goes.You have right to sue , not sure giving this up here is a good thing.Again they appear to be wanting to offer to talk about it and pay a lawyer a little bit to assist you. But no guarantees here at all.
I would consider an EEOC complaint and a lawyer to sue if they issue a right to sue letter.If there is age, sex, or race discrimination involved you may yet prevail through EEOC and get reinstatement.
Consider filing EEOC and then copying employer with offer to drop the complaint in return for reinstatement to your job.This gives you something concrete rather than this vague promise to talk about it.You can make such a counterclaim.
I would not accept anything less than immediate reinstatement here, if they were wrong they should admit that by hiring you back immediately.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again
EEOC file here.
I am so sorry you are having to go through all of this. An EEOC complaint would help your UI complaint if you have to file for benefits here in the meantime.You argue you were wrongfully terminated with discrimination and have filed with EEOC.
If you can leave a positive rating when we are done it is always much appreciated.Thanks again for letting me be of assistance today.
