Discrimination-Related Wrongful Termination Claims
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a federal administrative agency dedicated to investigating claims of discrimination in the workplace and, if applicable, wrongful termination that stemmed from discrimination. The EEOC’s state counterpart is the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), which also investigates lawsuits relating to discrimination in California workplaces. Before bringing a lawsuit based on a violation of certain anti-discrimination and related laws, you may be required to first pursue a claim with the EEOC and DFEH.
Both the EEOC and the DFEH can be contacted in response to wrongful termination. But you must request a “Right to Sue” letter before proceeding with state court. Our Orange County wrongful termination attorneys can help you navigate your options and provide you with further information on the nuances surrounding state and federal proceedings.
