Whether you have been terminated from a job, or think that you might be terminated from a job, it is important that you contact a labor and employment lawyer to discuss your legal rights. Depending on your situation, you may need to act immediately to protect your ability to go after your employer in the future.
It is important that you are aware that the law imposes certain time limits on when claims and suits may be filed (“statutes of limitation”). Therefore, your right to file a claim or suit will expire with the passage of time. These deadlines may begin to expire very soon. Therefore, to be safe – you should not delay in pursuing legal action if you intend to do so, because your claim or suit—no matter what it is for—will be barred if not filed within the applicable statute of limitations.
I wish you every success. If you would like to discuss your potential case as referenced above, please do not hesitate to call upon me if I can be of assistance in the future or schedule a free consultation.
Following your free consultation, if the best legal strategy involves filing a charge with an administrative agency like the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), then I will assist you.
What happens at the EEOC?
If you decide to pursue federal claims under Title VII, you must file the charge of discrimination with the EEOC and obtain a right to sue letter before filing a federal Title VII court action, except in limited circumstances.
I will prepare the necessary documents, including: assisting in drafting and filing the charge of discrimination with the agency; reviewing the Respondent’s position statement; drafting a response to the Respondent’s position statement and where necessary providing any additional information to support the allegations of discrimination including witness statements, documentation or other information/evidence; corresponding with the agency and the investigator assigned to the charge; and attending any mediation and/or negotiating any settlement.
Is mediation a possibility?
Many cases can get resolved through mediation, but there are no guarantees and your employer is not required to mediate or negotiate. It is important that before you decide to file a charge with the EEOC that you contact a Savannah Ga Employment and Personal Injury Attorney to discuss the case before moving forward.
Filing a lawsuit in State or Federal Court
Filing a lawsuit in state or federal court may be necessary, for the reason that employers seldom just admit that they did wrong. There are provisions for attorney’s fees under the discrimination laws and I will petition the court for an award of attorney fees in appropriate circumstances.
At an initial consultation we can discuss your other remedies, and in particular we can discuss that you also have an option to file a lawsuit directly in court without filing an administrative charge with the federal government in certain types of cases.
I take all employment claims on a contingency fee basis meaning that I do not get paid unless I win. There are provisions for attorney’s fees in the law and I would petition the court for an award of attorney fees. You have the possibility of recovering attorney’s fees; lost wages; compensation damages including pain and suffering and the front pay in lieu of reinstatement.
To begin the lawsuit, I will draft and file a complaint. The complaint will list the facts in your case and put the employer on notice of your claims. The employer then must file an answer. The next step is pretrial activities. The most important pretrial activity is “discovery”, which allows the parties to gather evidence. After discovery is over, the Court usually gives the parties a time period to file motions. If the judge rules in favor of one party, then the case is over. If the judge does not grant the motion, the case will go to trial.
At the free consultation I will also make an evaluation of your potential damages, which includes an assessment of your potential: lost wages; lost benefits; front pay; compensatory damages, including pain and suffering, emotional distress, or inconvenience; and punitive damages. Although these categories of damages are available under the discrimination laws, they may not all be applicable to your individual case. It is important to contact a Savannah Ga Employment and Personal Injury Attorney before attempting to settle your case so that you can make a clear and informed determination regarding what your case may be worth.
Mitigation of Damages
The most basic component of damages in an employment discrimination lawsuit or wrongful dismissal lawsuit is lost salary. Generally damages are measured by the salary you would have earned from your former employer from the date of your wrongful dismissal until the date of trial, less earnings your receive from part-time or full-time employment before trial. Therefore, you must look for work. You cannot sit back and let your damages build up and hope that you will recover the full amount of your lost salary at trial. If you do not look for work or are unavailable for work during a period of time, you probably will not be able to recover your lost salary for that period. That is, you have a duty to reduce your claim for lost salary and fringe benefits. Our Courts call this the “duty to mitigate damages.”
