Should I Hire a Chesterfield County National Origin Discrimination Attorney?
If you believe that you have been treated unfavorably in the workplace due to your ethnicity, accent, or the fact that you are, or appear to be, from another part of the world, you may have a claim claim with the EEOC or the Virginia Office of Civil Rights against your employer. Our firm can help you file that claim.
Filing a Claim With the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission/The Virginia Office of Civil Rights
Discrimination comes in many different forms. If you believe that any of the following has happened to you due to your national origin, you may have a claim:
- You were fired
- You were laid off
- You were demoted
- You were retaliated against
- You were denied a promotion
Before filing your claim, it is critical that you preserve all evidence needed to prove your claim. Our firm can help gather and present this evidence, alongside you, in an effort to attain the justice you deserve.
Ensure you file your claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or with the Virginia Office of Civil Rights as soon as possible. If you wait any longer than 180 days (or 300 days in certain circumstances), you may lose your right to file a claim. Further, if you are a federal employee, you will only have 45 days to file your claim, so the sooner you speak with our Midlothian employment attorney, the better off you will be.
