Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The only legally actionable discrimination in the workplace is discrimination based only on the age/race/sex/disability/national origin of the employee. Any other type discrimination or claims of unfair treatment or bullying
not based on one of those reasons would be not actionable in court.
Presuming your claims of discrimination are based on one of those reasons, if the employer is not taking action, your next step is to file a complaint to the EEOC
, http://www.eeoc.gov, as they have to investigate the complaint and grant you a right to sue letter before you can proceed to sue in federal court for unlawful discrimination. You have only 180 days to file a complaint if the discrimination was a one time action and 300 days to file if the discrimination was ongoing.
Once the EEOC investigates and grants a right to sue letter, then you have 90 days from the date of the letter to file suit with your local attorney.
