Filing an EEOC Charge
Almost every case of discrimination or harassment begins when an employee files a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the "EEOC." Federal cases involving gender, race, disability, age or national origin discrimination or harassment all require an employee to file a charge of discrimination with the EEOC to begin the litigation process. For cases against small employers or cases involving only Arkansas discrimination claims or even some cases based solely on race, employees can bring their claims directly to court without going first through the EEOC process. Our Little Rock discrimination lawyers can assist in navigating the EEOC process and the employment litigation that follows a charge of discrimination.
