Legal Question

Asked on: 6/02/13, 11:10 pm

Am I required to go through the EEOC with a work place disability discrimination case or am I able to bypass them and solely consult/hire a private attorney? My discrimination took place as an employee of a local government in Virginia and I'm leary to trust another government agency.

If you're referring to an ADA claim, then, yes, I believe you must first file

your claim through EEOC and have them investigate it and then issue you

a right to sue letter (in U.S. District Court) if your claim is deemed to have at least some merit.
