  • Layoff
  • Wrongful termination

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I WAS A VICTIM OF WORKPLACE DISCRIMINATION?

If you have been a victim of workplace discrimination, it is important to understand that you are not alone and you have options. The first step you should take is to do whatever possible to ensure you document as much of the facts around the incident(s) of discrimination. You can accomplish this by keeping a journal of the events.  You should report the conduct to your manager or Human Resources.  You should also make sure that you speak with a committed Midlothian employment attorney who can listen to your side of the story and work towards holding the discriminating parties responsible. Our firm will put in the work required to ensure that you and your rights are protected and that you can move forward in peace.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO FILE FOR WORKPLACE DISCRIMINATION IN VIRGINIA?

In the state of Virginia, you are required by state law to file your claim either with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and/or with the Virginia Office of Civil Rights within 180 days or 300 days in many cases. Delaying past this deadline will most likely block you from seeking legal action. That is why it is best to not cut it close and reach out to an employment attorney as soon as possible.
