Discrimination Lawsuits Follow A Unique Process
Unlike other forms of civil lawsuits, discrimination lawsuits concern employment rights under state and federal statutes. These cases may involve exhausting your administrative remedies with certain governmental agencies such as the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) and/or Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) before filing a lawsuit against your employer. Like other lawsuits, however, you will still need detailed and committed legal counsel.
