RE: DISCRIMINATION COMPLAINT WITH THE EEOC
Ok, EEOC and labor Boards most work together, only on is State, the other State and Federal. now, if you have a case and can prove you point well, you don't need an Attorney. For it's plain black and white, and the Laws and Rules apply.

If you win, which if they allowed you to file the complaint, they already think you have a case. This is the truth.

If they find you employer violated your rights, they get (a slap on the hand) for first offense, and maybe a $100.00 punishment fine, and they go on record.

Once you win, you then will be sent a letter in the mail. On the bottom of the letter it will say this.( We the undersign found employer to have violated your rights under section (whatever) and here by AWARD you the right to sue.)

Now the above means you won, so then now you need an Attorney, if you are going to sue them. You now also need to know, common settlements are only $10,000.00. So caution yourself. Attorney gets 30% or 40% of that. If your case makes it to court, and you an your Attorney showed you tried proper legal negoations, you go forth with a trail, and then the jury or the judge awards you an amount for settlement. Now, we all now, the legal system allows either party to an Appeals. And that can go back and forth for years depending on how much money your employer wishes to spend for an Attorney costing them $500.00 per hour. If the employer wishes to pay and make a stand, they will continue to fight the settlement.

In general words, if you want to make your point and prove you won, that is about all you may get if you don't fight back. But remember, not one sole really knows that you proved your point but us. but all in all, it will make me proud to see and hear you proved your point.

RE: DISCRIMINATION COMPLAINT WITH THE EEOC
Yes, it does sound like the first stage has been done. Sometimes if they think you don't have a case, they will tell you so from the begining also. But since yours went past the waiting period, you will now be sent a letter to go to your employer and try to work things out. Then you send in a form stating problems were solved or not solved. That is also only sometimes though. Then you get a letter after the complaint was made to have your first Arbitration hearing, where you and they employer show your facts. Mostly the employer will say very little, hoping the case goes no further. But if it went to that point, it will continue on, trust me, I've been there. never get nervous, for you have nothing to lose at this point. Just make sure you always bring your paper work and fact findings with you. It's kind of a simple process though as you will soon see. I go in with the (NO FEAR) attitude. Seems to keep my mind better focused then. Never try to force the Arbitrator into a decission, let them just do their job, for they do it better then us that made the complaint. Stick to your facts, and all will be just fine.
