Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts.
Is there a specific question with which I could assist?
No, our service has nothing to do with Legal Aid. All of the experts are independent and our agreement with the website prohibits any of the experts from taking cases that originate on the website. All we can do is provide information on legal topics.
If there is a specific question you need answered, then we can do that but if you are looking for someone to take your case you would need to look elsewhere.
With that in mind, do you have a specific question with which I could assist?
We need to continue in this thread until the issue is completed. I saw you posted another question so I'll copy it here and address it here rather than having multiple threads open.
Is your service Atty Dwayne part of the legal aid services? What are the chances of winning this case? What are the expenses I would expect? How long is this process?
No, we have nothing to do with Legal Aid.
Assuming you can prove that you were sexually harassed (usually this is just a matter of whether or not the judge or jury believes you) then you should have a good chance of winning.
You have to start your case by filing a charge of discrimination/harassment with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. You can get the information about the closest office at www.eeoc.gov.
Once they investigate they will likely issue you a "right to sue" letter and at that point you can file a lawsuit either for yourself or through an attorney. However, you MUST file with the EEOC first or you won't be able to file the lawsuit and you only have a limited time to file with the EEOC.
