Treating any person or a group of people unfairly from other people because of their caste, color, age, sex, or religion is called Discrimination and considered a legal offense.
Every state has their own set of rules against discrimination.
North Carolina’s state administrative agency does not process claims under the state anti-discrimination law.
File Discrimination Case
To file an employment discrimination case in North Carolina, the attorney generally chooses state court under federal law. However, an expert will help you know every point that may sometimes lead to complicated legal proceedings.
First, you must file a case against discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) office.
If EEOC successfully resolved your case, there is no need to hire an attorney, but if not resolved and you want to continue with your case, you can hire the attorney.
Your experienced lawyer will tell you about all the pros and cons of the decisions you must make as you proceed from the initial point, i.e., drafting the complaint till the day of trial. Then, your lawyer helps you in every possible way to land the court’s decision at your side.
Choosing the wrong attorney may result in joblessness or no recovery of damages.
The deadline to file a lawsuit for a state discrimination claim must be filed within three years, and other requests brought within 180 days.
These deadlines are known as the “Statute of Limitations.” Once you receive any notices, it’s time to rust to your attorney for future assistance.
It is essential to file the lawsuit within the given time; if you fail to do so, you may lose the ability to pursue the discrimination case.
