Customer Question

Do I have to file my claim with the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunities Commission) before trying to bring it to federal court?

Yes, if you do not file a charge with the EEOC and be issued a right to sue letter, your complain in federal court will be dismissed. Without you filing such charge with the EEOC, the federal court must dismiss the claim because you have not exhausted your administrative remedy.
