    It’s demoralizing to experience a hostile work environment. You hope that the harassment will stop if you put your head down and work as hard as possible. Then, one day, you come into work and discover that your employer has decided to fire you. You’ve got options at that point. But, you’d be in a much better position to settle your dispute if you’d contacted an Atlanta employment dispute lawyer earlier. Our Atlanta EEOC complaint lawyers at Allen & Scofield Injury Lawyers can help you if you’ve suffered these types of workplace harassment:

    • A hostile work environment (offensive jokes, slurs, epithets or name-calling, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults or put-downs, offensive objects or pictures).
    • Discrimination on the basis of your race, age, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.
    • Retaliation for complaining about unlawful discrimination.

    When you contact us, we’ll evaluate your potential employment claims. We can also help you file a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Then, we will work hand-in-hand with the EEOC investigator to help you favorably resolve your claim.

    Why Should I File An EEOC Complaint?

    You may be hesitant to file an EEOC complaint if you’re experiencing discrimination. Perhaps, you fear that your boss will treat you even worse. Many people are surprised to learn that their employers are often willing to negotiate.

    Additionally, an EEOC complaint can sometimes create job security for you. If your employer was planning to fire you, they might temporarily cancel those plans. That’s because they fear that they will expose themselves to a retaliation claim.

    How Does the EEOC Complaint Process Work?

    The EEOC will notify your employer that you filed a complaint. In some cases, the EEOC will ask you and your employer to mediate the dispute. Also, some large employers have their own dispute resolution process that is similar to mediation.

    Mediation enables you, your employer, and your Atlanta EEOC complaint lawyer to discuss your concerns. The mediator is a neutral. That means they don’t have a “dog in the fight.” The mediator is just there to help everyone resolve the dispute.

    Your EEOC complaint might not settle at mediation. In that case, the EEOC will require your employer to submit a position statement that addresses your claims. Then, your EEOC lawyer might advise you to file a lawsuit so that a jury can resolve your claim.
