4. Employer Panic. Employers are reading the same headlines and attending the same training classes that employees do. The number one reason for a discrimination lawsuit in 2019 as cited earlier, was “retaliation.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does an employment discrimination lawsuit cost?

These costs generally run at least $10,000, and can be considerably more. More commonly than pure contingency, an attorney may handle your employment discrimination lawsuit on a partial contingency basis, requiring you to pay specific fees and expenses whether you win or lose the case.

Which is easier for an employer to discriminate against?

State and local laws will never be “easier” on a discriminating employer than federal (Title VII) laws. On the other hand, many states have more robust employment discrimination laws, covering more areas of discrimination than are available through the EEOC.

What are the federal laws on employment discrimination?

Federal antidiscrimination laws prohibit discrimination in employment based on gender (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity), race, national origin, color, age (employees 40 and older), disability, genetic information, or religion.

Can you file a discrimination lawsuit against an employer?

You may file an employment discrimination lawsuit against the at-fault employer for any of the laws enforced by the EEOC. However, before filing a lawsuit (except for equal pay complaints), you must first file a “Charge of Discrimination.” Find the EEOC office nearest you with this EEOC Office List and Jurisdictional Map.
