Being discriminated against on the job is harmful, but it can also be difficult to detect. Too many employees fail to recognize that there are laws in place that protect them from discrimination and that doing so is worth the effort.

If you believe you’re being discriminated against on the job, there are several preliminary steps you’ll need to address, which typically include filing a complaint with the Civil Rights Department (CRD). Bringing a successful discrimination claim is a complex legal endeavor, but having seasoned legal guidance backing you up can streamline the process – guiding you directly toward the right to sue notice you’ll need to file your discrimination lawsuit against your employer.
Once you’ve filed your discrimination lawsuit, which is also known as a complaint, your employer and any other defendants you name in the suit must be served with the legal papers. This sets the legal process in motion and affords them the opportunity to respond. From here, negotiations can begin, and if a mutually acceptable resolution is reached, the matter is settled. While most discrimination claims are settled out of court, some proceed to trial.
