If a co-employee stole from you, you of curse have a cause of action against that employee for theft
. You do not have a cause of action against the employer because they may not have believed you. However, if you believe that you are being discriminated against because of your race, you do have a legal remedy.
Workplace harassment/discrimination is any unwelcome or unwanted conduct that denigrates or shows hostility or an aversion toward another person on the basis of any characteristic protected by law, which includes an individual's race, color, religious creed, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, medical condition national origin, or ancestry, or other personal characteristic protected by law. A conduct is considered unwelcome if the employee did not solicit, instigate or provoke it, and the employee regards ***** ***** as undesirable or offensive.
If your goal is to ultimately sue in Federal Court
, then you will file a complaint
with the EEOC. You must file a formal complaint of discrimination with the EEOC within 300 days of the alleged discriminatory act.
You may file a complaint with the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). If your company has 15 or more employees they are prohibited from discriminating against you. To file a complaint with the EEOC, contact the nearest Equal Employment Opportunity Commission field office. To be automatically connected with the nearest office, call(###) ###-#### ***** website: www.eeoc.gov
Federal law specifically prohibits discrimination, based upon the Ethnicity, Color, Religion, National Origin, Age, Sex and Disability of an individual, with regard to hiring, promotion and firing.
After you file the complaint, your employer will be prohibited from any retaliatory action against you. The EEOC will investigate your claim, and 180 days after the filing of the complaint you may ask for a "right to sue letter". The EEOC will issue you the letter which gives you the right to institute a private civil action against your employer and seek monetary damages.
