Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of law practice and over 20 years of experience in the legal field. I’m happy to be of assistance.
At this stage, no honest attorney can tell you that you HAVE a claim. There are simply not enough facts here and the employer's explanation is not on the table.
That being said, your facts indicate the frame work of an EEOC complaint, with an adverse employment action, a protected category that you are alleging is the basis for that adverse action and the employer's seemingly unexplained decision to release you. These establish the backbone of a claim, and the EEOC can take that and investigate it much further.
Following the EEOC process, then you may have a much better understanding of your legal position. This is why many attorneys prefer to wait until you've completed the EEOC process before they'll take your case.
I believe here that you have a legitimate basis to have an investigation done.
If you have any further questions, please let me know. I invite follow up questions, so use REPLY for those. If you have no further questions then good luck going forward and please do not forget to rate my service with a top-three rating so that I receive credit for working with you today. Please rate me based on my service and not on your satisfaction with the law, which I am not in control of and I am just reporting to you.
