CLS may be able to help you determine whether an employer has unlawfully discriminated against you. CLS may also assist by giving advice, filing charges, and referring you to a private attorney. It is imperative that discrimination claims be promptly filed with the appropriate federal, state, or local agencies so that you do not lose your right to go to court.
Generally, a person has 180 calendar days from the time the discrimination takes place to file a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. This deadline is extended to 300 calendar days in cases where a “state or local agency enforces a law that prohibits employment discrimination on the same basis.”
