Customer Question
No I have it...

No I have it documented and I went through with the EEOC office in LA but I haven't heard back from them. It's been 3 weeks.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Full time.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I was fired because "It would be easier for me as a woman to find a job than it would be for my 50-something male supervisor".
