Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney with extensive labor law experience. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.

I am sorry to hear that you were terminated from your job, it is never easy to lose your job suddenly.

Answer: There are two options in this scenario:

  1. File a claim with the Civil Rights Division of the Arizona Attorney General's Office by clicking here; or
  2. File a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) by clicking here.

Either option will allow you to get the assistance of a government entity in determining if you have a claim against your former employer.
