On the other hand, you have deadlines to file your claim with the DFEH and/or EEOC that you must meet in order to preserve your right to sue in court. I would contact one or both of these agencies immediately and start the process of filing a claim.

But if they don't do so in a 'reasonable' time, demand a decision.

You have only one year from the 'incident' of discrimination to bring legal action, regardless of the outcome of the investigation.

If you decide to pursue your legal claims, feel free to contact me for the help you'll need in filing suit. I've been doing these for over 25 years.
