Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are you referring to an EEOC complaint or just a general civil suit against the employer?
Correct, that is what I wanted to clarify to make sure you are aware you have to exhaust your administrative complaint process before filing suit. If the EEOC has investigated and issued a "right to sue" letter finding probable cause that illegal discrimination has occurred then if it isn't resolved, you file a civil suit in federal court.
You must file with the Vermont Human Rights Commission (VHRC) or EEOC within 300 days of the date you believe you were discriminated against.
To file a claim with the VHRC, contact its office below. More information about filing a claim with the VHRC can be found at the VHRC website.
