What Must Be Proven in a Discrimination Claim?

The federal agency that is in charge of investigations of workplace discrimination is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Before taking issues to court, employees that have been discriminated against must file their claim with the EEOC.

How Can a North Las Vegas Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Depending on where you file your claim, the procedural laws will vary considerably, and so a North Las Vegas lawyer will help familiarize you with the requirements for your district. An experienced Nevada lawyer will also guide you in filing your claim with the EEOC, as well as helping you obtain other forms of relief while your claim is being processed.
