My husband filed an EEOC complaint against his current company

Customer Question

My husband filed an EEOC complaint against his current company for discrimination (my husband is African American). He has not been paid correctly for months and was promised health benefits within 90 days of employment, which he has yet to receive (90 days was 2 months ago). When my husband reported it to his HR rep, hit HR rep told him that he needed to stop being a dead beat dad and then referred to him as a "porch monkey". When my husband filed a complaint with the HR Manager, he then replied "I'll look into it". A few days have gone by and surprisingly, the HR rep admitted to speaking to my husband that way. THe company has yet to apologize and is telling my husband that he will receive the money he is owed in 2 weeks. My husband decided to put in his 2 weeks notice. Even though we've reported this to the EEOC, do we need a lawyer?

Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight. Yes you have right here to sue for discrimination and all that he has been through.He may have damages due him here , if he wants to sue make sure he doesn't sign any release if they offer severance. This is horrible that somebody would say this and management did nothing.Thats the real key here they failed to act quickly to remedy this matter and take personnel action against his person.I can understand why he is leaving. I hope he will sue here, you might find employment lawyer to take this contingent fee.
